Little do most know, project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals, and this refers to small and big projects respectively.

It surely comes as no surprise to you that the manager must also develop and execute a laundry list of projects to ensure that everything on and in the building is running smoothly. This is because a core function of FM is to manage a variety of tasks that require to be completed not only effectively but simultaneously.
