   We understand project management to be the overall input required in ensuring that a project is
    delivered on time, within budget, safely and within the conditions of an agreed contract.

   That input is the directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the life of a
    project by using modern management techniques

   Not to be confused with programme management, which is: the process of managing several related
    projects, often with the intention of improving an organization's performance.

   We can all be project managers – but can we deliver?
