    The findings are presented of a competency survey of project managers in South East Queensland, Australia. This was designed to capture the ‘real world’ experiences and skills of current practicing project managers, and investigate the most important project management skills that a project manager must possess, and obtain any additional skills and/or issues that a project manager should possess and be aware of in the twenty-first century. In terms of project management skills, it was found that the ability to communicate, ability to meet project objectives and make decisions are the most important skills needed. In contrast, ability to use computer/project management software and ability to manage legal issues are the least important skills. In terms of current skills, the older managers, with the exception of the use of computer/project management software, have a greater degree of project management skills than their younger counterparts. The biggest gap between skills needed and skills possessed is in communication. The issues and skills that a project manager should be aware of and possess in the foreseeable future were found to comprise industrial relations, workplace health and safety, environmental issues, adaptability/innovative/flexibility, stakeholders management skill, coaching/transfer of knowledge skill, client related skill, networking skill and business skill

The game of playing for subsidized water continues even as the buyers now face real costs rather than just some future possibility of incurring costs. Recent analysis is being used to help negotiate favorable delivery and repayment contracts. Experience has shown that once the physical development is in place, costs are negotiable.Resource /Energy Economics and Policy,

    Abstract—Much of the technical literature on spectrum sharing has been on developing technologies and systems for non-cooperative) opportunistic use. In this paper, we situate this approach to secondary spectrum use in a broader context, one that includes cooperative approaches to Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA). In this paper, we introduce readers to this broader approach to DSA by contrasting it with non-cooperative sharing (opportunistic use), surveying relevant literature, and suggesting future directions for researc
