Towards an Outcome Based Project Management Theory how managerial practices can be improved to seize the opportunity of delivering change and contributing to achieving strategic goals through. Describe how the Project/Program generated an outcome and/or made or contributed to an impact. Outcomes/Impacts can be changes in: (1) Learning: Knowledge, awareness, or skills gained by others. (2) Action: New methods/tools or behaviors/practices adopted by others. Project management should identify the risks and uncertainties that might affect the project and develop contingency plans for dealing with them.
