The word `project` denotes precedence, meaning something that precedes an action. A project is a set of activities intended to accomplish pre-specified objectives of sufficient importance and considerable interest to the management. Project planning and appraisal is vital for businesses as it helps them to suitably and profitably undertake those ventures that match its financial, technological, intellectual and time resources. In businesses, project and project management are important concepts. Since businesses primarily run on profit motive, it becomes imperative for businesses to calculate, from the outset, the cost and probability of success of every project. Project management has gained importance in modern times as it helps an organisation successfully accomplish tasks keeping in mind the time, cost and resource constraints without compromising on quality and profitability.
Considering the growing importance and scope of project management in organisations, several universities have included project appraisal, planning and control in their MBA curricula.
