Organizations are willing for people to go on project management training courses, which is laudable. Yet employers rarely offer a coherent introduction to what a project is before expecting their people to manage one.

Events may be small in scale and limited in their complexity; others would be substantially more challenging, taking a much longer time to complete, and requiring the collaboration of many other talents working in conjunction with each other, the setting location, time, weather, etc. Because of the multitude of unknown factors, risks abound in the execution of a project, from the planning phase until the last clean-up operation.
