As others have mentioned, projectile  is good for a wide range of project
types, but doesn't really do "project management" as such. I mainly use it for
development projects, as it provides standardised keybindings for concepts such
as project-wide search, replace and build.
But the big thing for your particular use case, assuming you haven't already
seen it, is org-mode. It is *incredible* and supports both inline and block
LaTeX. It sounds weird until you use it, but org-mode works as both a
typesetting language (typically by exporting to the more verbose LaTeX) and a
TODO organiser. I strongly recommend reading the "compact" manual to get a
flavour. It is the kitchen sink within the kitchen sink.
I've even used it with pandoc (a universal document converter tool) to
produce presentations and accompanying speaker notes.
