Project Management is often defined as the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals. Every organization uses project management due to its high value in providing a competitive edge by improving operations, cutting costs, reducing risks and delivering results. Project Management is a key adjunct to bring a drug to market.
