Project Management prevailed as a tool for the design and implementation monitoring of projects in the 1960 industrial societies.
The term was tightly connected with project scheduling. In the 70s and especially in the 80s it was obvious that in order to secure the successful project implementation, operational tools do not suffice. Project Management as implied by its terminology evolved in a management System and as such includes:
- Design Tools
- Monitoring Tools
- Management and Organization models
Various Project Management tools are potential means that could be utilized according to the requirements and special conditions of each project. Projects should be "holistically" analyzed and for each project the appropriate tools should be selected to secure optimum design and trouble-free implementation. Routine linear organizational methods cannot be applied in Project Management. Instead specialized "Project Management practices" should be applied.
