Project management is a form of knowledge work and the project management function of an organisation is an essential component in delivering and maintaining business value. As with all knowledge work, project management presents unique challenges in understanding productivity.

In this report Professor Lynn Crawford and Associate Professor Julien Pollack provide insight into:
- Methods to measure and communicate the productivity and impact of project based work
- Innovative ways of improving sustainable levels of productivity in the way that projects are managed
