One of the critical success factors of a project is a strong leader who is able to manage the team members and other resources, so that the project can be completed on time, within budget and at an acceptable level of quality. As more and more human endeavours are organised in the form of discrete but inter-related projects, there is a need for well trained leaders to manage these projects. The generic knowledge in project management helps future leaders undertake important and challenging tasks of organising manpower, materials, equipment, time and monetary resources to achieve project success.
