Benefits – organisation?

Traditional Project Management is based on the idea that companies have a long time before bringing out new products, and any product will generate revenue for many years. For many industries the traditional model no longer applies, where companies now have to bring new products to market quickly, and expect to constantly refine the product or innovate in order to retain market share.
