Introduction Page Evolutionary Project Management (“ Evo ”) is a significant step forward in managing complex projects of all kinds. It promises and delivers earlier delivery of critical results and on-time delivery of deadlined results. It can be used for getting better control over quality, performance and costs than conventional project management methods. It is particularly suited to complex technology, fast-moving environments, large scale projects. But, it certainly works well on a small scale too. The key idea of Evo is “learning” and consequent adaptation. It is about learning about realities as early as possible and taking the consequences of any project reality, external or internal, and making the most of that information. Evo is a 21 st Century project management method, it promises both rapid results, and rapid response and adaptation to unforeseen circumstances: both good and bad.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
