Project management is a very-fast moving scene. It's not like the older professions - the sort of 100-year-old professions. It's only been in existence for something like 40 years. As a modern professional activity or modern specialised activity, project management techniques are evolving all the time. For example, in the 60s, 70s and 80s people weren't talking about risk management. Now it's regarded as a fundamental part of project management.

Project management is now a well-established profession in the UK - it has established education, training and qualifications run or managed or controlled by the Association of Project Management. A Royal Charter declaring it to be a profession is expected before the end of the year.
