How much project control is too much: the case for and against "interference"?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOther

Abstract

In the current reporting environment, those responsible for delivering projects are required to report against fixed metrics. The desire to ‘control’ the outcome of a project drives this culture of oversight that may be perceived as interference in the project manager’s ability to meet client expectations. Recently, two countries have formalised the controls placed on project delivery. In the USA, the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act of 2015 (PMIAA) was enacted to enhance accountability and best practices in project and program management throughout US federal government projects. In the UK, the Association of Project Management received a Royal Charter from Her Majesty The Queen which will provide professional status, as well as additional governance requirements, for members. Will this move to a transparent control regime deliver more successful project outcomes?
