What is Project Planning about?

In society, almost everything we do can be described as project management. From buying our weekly groceries to organising a family get-together, project management skills are involved. The government also depends on the success of its projects &/or private projects in order to deliver services to the public. Project planning is therefore an essential part of our everyday activities in the society and the economy at large.
