Summary and Conclusions

  • Louis J. Goodman


We have come a long way from the initial articulation of ongoing serious problems with wastage and mismanagement in many project areas despite increasing attention to engineering management education. It is therefore useful to refocus on the last paragraph in Chapter 1 as a lead-in for a summary of the many lessons derived from Chapter 9. Attention is then focused on specific projects and programs in both government and industry that could benefit from the IPPMC conceptual framework and IPPMC case histories.
