I'm no expert on project management - just take a look at this website. Perhaps if I had exercised a little PM before commencing with the development it just might have been finished on time.

On that note I'll leave it to Project Management Guru Max Wideman to provide the introduction:

"A successful project management process relies on two activities – planning first, and then doing. These two sequential activities form the basis of every project life-cycle, and can be expanded to suit the control requirements of every type of project in every area of project management application. The project life-cycle, characterized by a series of ‘milestones’ determines when the project starts, the ‘control gates’ through which it must pass, and when the project is finished."

Project Management for Dummies

Project Management for Dummies
Stanley Portny

Projects have been around since ancient times: Noah building the Ark, Leonardo da Vinci painting the Mona Lisa, landing a man on the moon-all projects. Over the past decade, the number of projects has exploded in the workplace. Projects, from large to small, are the way companies and organizations get work done. Project Management For Dummies dispels the notion that projects are large, technically complex undertakings that only MBA's can manage. This handy reference shows readers everything from how to assemble the right team, to figuring out a schedule, estimating needed resources, and managing the project as it progresses. Also included are real-life project management problems such as: how to get results when you have no direct authority over participants, what to do when team members don't follow through, how to handle differing departmental agendas, and how to balance your regular work with additional project management/participation responsibilities.
