Suddenly all work is project work and the ratio of functional-to-project related duties seems to have done a flip-flop. As the percentage of project related work reaches nearly 80% for even “non-project” oriented associates, the need for a guiding process by which to “do more with less” has never been greater.

Successful projects typically have teams motivated by ownership and a sense of contribution. Every team member can be a leader with the right knowledge and tools.
