As the key to get-work-done and problem-solving, project is being recognized in its value and importance as a way of working.

In the Project Economy®, the importance of project management practitioners is also increasingly recognized by organizations because they are the ones turning ideas into reality, in a world that is becoming increasingly projectified to deliver financial and societal value.
