Companies increasingly use projects and project management to achieve their goals. They use projects to develop new products or new technologies. They use projects to implement specific changes to their organization business processes. They use projects to experiment with new business models. They even use projects as their basic form of organization, e.g. when they are consulting companies, IT system builders or research organizations. No matter how, no matter where you will work, as a technology manager you will be confronted with projects, you will be enrolled in projects and you will be required to manage projects.
