The emerging role of the project manager
In pre-agricultural economies, wealth depended on the availability of resources like game, fruit, or fish—and the skill to catch or use those resources. In agricultural economies, land was the primary resource. In an industrial economy, raw material and the equipment to transform it into goods was the primary economic resource. As society has evolved from one type of economy to another, the skills needed to keep up with change have evolved, and the system of education has had to change to keep pace. Industrial-era education, a system that is still in place, focused on producing workers who showed up on time, followed the direction of authority and provided basic skills needed to produce goods.
