“Using a Project Management approach in all walks of business is like implementing a formula for success. Project Management is often developed using a generic basis. However, each implementation is different, and the nuances and culture play important roles in creating strategies that are implementable, effectively measurable and sustainable. Project Management Systems need to focus on simplification and implementation, not complication”
