"Project management has passed through various stages over time, evolving in order to better meet the needs of particular projects. At present, the scope of project management covers a significant number of situational and sequential activiities. This necessitates a series of specific project manager competencies in order to implement projects successfully in terms of cost, schedule and performance. Several studies have been made in this field, resulting in various outcomes. Among them Dr. Owen Gadeken's research, published in 1997 in the Army RandD magazine, summarizes the competencies of outstanding program managers based upon preceding studies analyzing successful defence program managers. The present report uses the case of the Land Reserve Modernization Program (LRMP) at Meaford, Ontario, Canada, in order to explore the competencies identified in the aforementioned research. The LRMP was a large infrastructure program consisting of four projects, the first of which was the implementation of a militia training support center at Meaford. This report analyzes the LRMP project in terms of the program manager's comptencies and explores them by highlighting the events that necessitated those comptencies." -- p. v.
