From the Paper:

"The vast developments in the field of information technology have lead to the advent of globalization and an ever-shrinking world in today's point in time. These developments have lead to an environment of uncertainties and complexities that need to be catered to.
Decisions are to be made and they must be made quickly, as well as efficiently and effectively. "In such an environment, a good axiom for project management is, Do It, Do It Right, Do It Right Now. Creating clear direction, efficiency, timely response, and quality outcomes requires project managers who are agile -- adept at change." (John Stark)
"In this regard, the best can be said that management is the foremost skill that is required for such decision-making and for such efficiency and effectiveness. However, management is not the only skill that is required."
