Project Management: tools and knowledge to manage projects.


Project Management is the unique organisational competency that manages change and drives competitive advantage. It is a skill that must be taught and learned. It is not well done in the resource sector with many reports of escalating costs, late delivery and skills shortages. Important elements are the project objective, scope, budget, plans and schedule, reporting, evaluating performance and closeout.
