The Art & Science of Project Management

The theme of this newsletter is how organisations with effective Project Management Practices are those that have learned to blend both the art and science of project management to avoid common project pitfalls. (see examples below)

  • The Art of Project Management: processes that impact on outlook, interaction and decision making
  • The Science of Project Management: Tools and techniques to plan, organise and Control the delivery of project goals.

Logic alone is seldom enough yet project management methods such as Prince2 (Project in Controlled Environments) specifically exclude the knowledge/creative management, project quality assurance mechanisms and value engineering processes that characterise more than 50% of the recipe for success.
