Project Management evolved from the 1940s to the 1970s as a discipline for
managing engineering projects with respect to time, budget and specification.
Todays world of project management is much more demanding because it involves
far more numerous types of projects, is applied earlier in the life cycle of
these projects and now also has applications in delivering organizational
change programs and strategic initiatives.
Unfortunately, the newer methods for project management are often not used or
are poorly understood. The key people running projects have often not been
sufficiently trained in the use of these methods before being handed the
gauntlet to complete a challenging project. Those organizations that are
competent in project management methods differentiate themselves through their
performance and ability to profitably grow. Simply implementing best project
practices in a consistent manner will lead to significant improvement in many
projects of all types.
de Wardt and Company identified the critical methods for project
management and developed tools to support their implementation. These tools are
made available to our clients, as needed, to support their management of
projects. Applications are found in both the traditional engineering /
construction projects and the non-traditional organizational change / strategy
