Project Management is of fast growing importance to organisations because it deals effectively with the management of change. Both contemporary and project-based organisations are beginning to realise that the traditional form of management cannot deal with the dynamics and resulting chaos of the modern economic, social and business environment. Project management is a method for organisations to achieve profitability targets, but just as significantly; it is a 'culture' that will assist most people to improve their personal performance.

The Centre for Project Management (CPM) at the Kemmy Business School at UL is the only centre of its type in Ireland that specialises in the provision of education, research and training in this discipline.
