Managers of most modern organisations are seeing a rise in the use of project management techniques as being central to their performance in the organisation. This has arisen from the wider use being placed on of these techniques as tools for day to day operations and the delivery of strategy. This is in addition to the need for organisations to efficiently deliver their traditional projects on budget, on time and to spec.
