A personal perspective of MPM

Downsizing, restructuring, employee empowerment, technology, global competition, and deregulation have all changed the face of the average organization today. The use of cross-functional "change teams" to manage these ubiquitous changes have been highly prevalent as well as successful. Modern Project Management (MPM) has had a leading role in designing these multidisciplinary teams, ultimately contributing to the effectiveness of the change process. The theory of MPM has been to use multifunctioning teams that pull from the expertise of people from different disciplines, organization units, and external organizations and use the collective knowledge to gain productivity and understanding across the organization. MPM will continue to be a leader in the future of organizational change.
