This paper seeks to examine the nature of managerial control which espouses the use of traditional approaches to deliver projects. The defined boundaries used to set standards by which plans are executed in organisations has increasingly led to projects not realising their full potential, and creating ongoing issues. The adoption of a broader approach is necessary where socialisation of project knowledge occurs. The advent of creative approaches, underpinned by professional standards, training, and certification, can frame a more nuanced approach upon which to shape the future of how projects are delivered. This postmodern perspective is hoped to encourage the evolution of professional knowledge workers who will be empowered to develop contemporary social practices that will lead to superior project outcomes.
