n South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences - Project-based production and project management : findings and trends in research on temporary systems in multiple contexts

As the world changed from an industrially driven to a more knowledge driven economy and the pace of continuous change became more intense, organisations adopted a project-based mode of operations on a broader scale.
