It also looks at how to vary the organisation in response to the differing environments over the lifetime of a project.In a pragmatic, accessible style, the author has both added to the body of knowledge in this area and provided the project management with a set of effectivemanagement tools to:examine the criteria for designing structures within an organisation identify the factors relevant to the development of an initial project organisation structure assess the significance of an individual factor in the operation of a structure
