Project Management within the Aerospace and Defence Industry
The aerospace and defence industry is changing quickly as it faces many challenges such as globalisation, deregulation and cuts in military spending. Every business undertakes projects of some sort, but business’s in the aerospace and defence sector are more project-intensive than others, working for years on long term contracts or development projects that will eventually bring forth a new missile system, jet aircraft or ship.
