Project Management
What comes to mind whenever Project Management is mentioned? What issues or problems were experienced in project management?

Project Management
Project Management is the discipline of planning, organizing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific goals and objectives.

Project Management
Primary challenge of PM is to achieve goals and objectives overcoming the constraints:
Scope, Quality, Time and Budget

Case Study
CASE 1
Situation:
The Ateneo Chemistry Society is the home organization of chemistry majors. They have a very efficient set of officers, but the problem is that the officers cant make sense of the advocacy of Aches (promoting the relevant application of chemistry for social involvement toward progressive nation-building) as a chemistry org in terms of social relevance development.

Need:
Craft a training program for the Aches officers to address their problem of not being able to understand the concept of advocacy building.

Constraints:
Planning time: 1 month Budget: PhP 5,000

Case Study
CASE 2
Situation:
The Ateneo Junior Marketing Association has trouble with the level of maturity of their working arm, the AJMA Force. The AJMA Force is composed of more than 100 members who are tasked to head projects and committees of the various events of AJMA.

Need:
Identify the needs of AJMA and craft a training program that will address these needs.

Constraints:
Planning time: 1 month Budget: PhP 5,000
