Project Management – What is it and why do we care so much?

Those of us who practice project management are always focused on delivery of successful results, but we are usually even more focused on the crucial steps involved to achieve those results.

TerraTherm’s Project Managers, the Organizational Team Behind our Thermal Remediation Projects

When asked to write this blog about the project management team, I had to sit back and consider how to convey our role within TerraTherm. I asked myself who are we, and what motivates us?
