The global disbursement and availability of technology has ushered in a truly global economy. Globalization has resulted in tremendous pressure on organizations to constantly lower their cost structures.

These practices have, in turn, led to changes in the very nature of the work being performed.

A project is broadly defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® as "a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result." The temporary aspect of project management is what differentiates it from routine, operational work. Project-based work is temporary in the sense that projects have a definite life span even though that life may span multiple years.
PMI has named Saint Louis University as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) R.E.P.s are organizations that have been approved by PMI to help project managers achieve and maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)® and other PMI professional credentials. These organizations have met PMI's rigorous quality criteria for course content, instructor qualification and instructional design.
Project management practices have spread across multiple disciplines from technology to manufacturing, from real estate to construction, and from sales management to service.
