Evidence-Based Project Management
Project management has emerged as a critical organizational capability in recent years. In parallel with this increased prominence has been the emergence of the “professional project manager,” supported by a sophisticated suite of project management tools and techniques.
Evidence-based project management will evaluate the accumulated data, evidence and research in support of different project management strategies, tools and techniques.
