Guide to Project Budget Management: A Collection of Tools, Tips & Resources

Project Budget TemplateWelcome to the Project Budget Management Guide at Bright Hub! One of the most vital elements of any project management proposal is the project budget. A well thought-out project budget will help to keep personnel focused on the project's financial constraints, reducing waste and redundancy, and can be used as a means to determine success.

But the job of putting together a budget for a new project may seem a bit daunting- especially if the manager assigned to lead the initiative has had little or no prior experience coordinating projects.

In short, with the information provided in these pages, the new project manager can learn how to create and manage the budget of any project.

The current collection of articles and resources is culled from the most popular project management articles at Bright Hub and is refreshed continually. Be sure to check out the other informative channels at Bright Hub. Bright Hub's professional community of writers and editors develop thousands of articles each month in the areas of project management, business and computing, as well as a range of topics in science, art, and technology.
