Abstract: This paper introduces a model for multi function project management and describes the problems that had to be dealt with when implementing the model. The author points to the benefits and shortcomings of process management and TQM (Total Quality Management) in this case. The new project management model has meant a cultural revolution for project management and shortened time-to-market penetration.

Keywords: product development; project management; time-to-market.
