project management


Whether they’re late, over budget or failing to deliver on key objectives, there are many ways that engineering projects can go astray. Juggling the dynamics of the project toolkit with the ability to bring others with you is the key skill of the project manager.

Organisations across sectors and borders have been steadily embracing project management – in today’s competitive world, successful project delivery often determines whether they will get the next job or if a new product hits the market.

This portfolio has been curated to support those sponsoring complex improvement programmes to those working in project teams for the first time.

“Operations keeps the lights on, strategy provides a light at the end of the tunnel, but project management is the train engine that moves the organization forward.” ~ Joy Gumz
