As others have mentioned, projectile [1] 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[2]. 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[3] (a universal document converter tool) to 
produce presentations and accompanying speaker notes[4].
