Abstract

Welcome to the third volume in this mini-series focused on developing and presenting new perspectives and ideas pertinent to the successful management of projects, programmes, and change initiatives. The first two books emerged from an attempt to refine and define the boundaries of project management, often focusing on topics and areas that receive little attention in the conventional standards and professional bodies of knowledge. Once again, the writing in this volume aims to help practitioners by focusing on key areas emphasising capabilities, skills, attitudes, values, and competencies that are needed to successfully deliver projects.
