This paper contains considerable anecdotal evidence that, although useful, does not necessarily support a conclusion one way or the other. I have tried to use case studies from David Cleland's Project Management Casebook[23] but the difficulty I encountered was in clearly identifying the role of the project manager and hence drawing appropriate conclusions. I therefore chose anecdotal cases in which the role of the project manager was clearly known to me (Cases #1, 2 & 3) or else easily identified (Case #4). Nevertheless, the weaknesses of the cases are recognized
