Local government projects must coordinate among various agencies, answer to multiple bosses, and be accountable to vacillating public opinion. When projects become bigger, more complex, and involve more people, there is an even greater need to perform them in an organized and efficient fashion. Modern project management (MPM) provides a framework for doing this. Local governments that adopt MPM enjoy better working relationships, bottom-line savings, and the ability to serve more people with fewer resources.
