How is project management different from general management?


Edited: Mar 28, 2018

Project management by definition involves temporary endeavour with the goal of creating something new.  It has a beginning, an end, and an objective that can be achieved. As a result, it is often (not always) temporary group of people, the project manager often does not have HR responsibilities, and there is a limited horizon. The emphasis is on one-time result.  Think building a new high rise building. General management is repeatable process: there is no end date and the process is often "business as usual".  General manager manages a fixed group of people that repeats the same task day in and day out.  Think a maintenance crew that cleans and maintains the aforementioned building after it is built.
