Successful project management has always been one of the key challenges for a project manager. It would be nice to think that every project you undertake has a successful closure and that you can count on your team's ability to get everything completed in time. However, that isn’t always the case. 

Project management is a process in which people find themselves making rookie mistakes from time to time, especially when they are managing a project for the first time. Failing to define project goals, substandard project planning, poorly defined roles, and responsibilities, faulty resource plan, and imperfect risk management are some of the most common challenges that a project manager may encounter when dealing with the management of a project.
