There is no shortage of stories of project failure. Organisations around the globe have experienced the highs and lows of project management and the impacts of project work on resources, outputs and broken systems, under the traditional model of project management theory.

USQ researchers are challenging the age-old theories of project management by taking a look at what really happens in project work. Their goal is to better equip organisations to deal with the messy realities of project work. USQ has broken the mould of traditional thinking and is now looking at project work and project management, through new lenses.
