Abstract

Believes modern project management practices only began to emerge in 1939 — just before World War II. Identifies the US Air Force as the main breeding ground for many current programme and project management practices, including among others the space race, as the US chased the USSR after the Sputnik (and first man in space) by the Russians. Reckons that organizations do not thrive on technique alone as management is infinitely more complicated than that. Concludes that managers who consider the use of project or programme management will find a lot of potential value — those applying it judiciously will reap considerable benefits.
