Project management has become a prime technique for management of change in the modern business world. Business Management of Projects presented by USB Executive Development (USBED) was developed by the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) to respond to this need in a practical, how-to-do-it way. More than 11 000 participants from over 120 organisations across South Africa have completed this programme since 1992. The programme presents all the principles, processes, techniques and requirements for the focused and integrated management of substantial ad hoc tasks (i.e. projects) by a specific team against planned targets of time and cost, as opposed to functional management. The programme is generic in nature and therefore does not endorse a specific project management methodology.
