History Project Management, Project Management, History


Long before there was an institute for project management, or updated knowledge books and guides on how to manage projects, or even before the existence of Gantt charts, history offers several examples of colossal projects successfully completed.  The Pyramids of Giza, Great Wall of China, and Coliseum are all good examples of such projects.  Project Management, at its core, is concerned with creating an environment where people can work together to achieve a mutual objective, in order to deliver successful projects on time and on budget.  Throughout the history of humanity, humans have been working on improving and refining the practices of project management.  The goal of this paper is to present the evolution of project management since ancient times until present times and its outlook in the future by outlining major events and developments throughout history.
