Aviation projects have commonly failed to deliver their expected outcomes on time and have greatly exceeded their intended budgets. Many of those failures would have been prevented if the project managers had adhered to the sound principles of project management, as described and demonstrated throughout this book.Differentsystems emerged in Europe andNorth America butallthese methods dependedonthe useof diagrams inwhich allthe identifiableproject tasksorexpected eventsare depictedas symbols arranged in a pattern that determines their practical chronological sequence.
