The paper draws attention to one important and fundamental principle that is often overlooked owing to the plethora of complex and fashionable management techniques that are given prominence by academics and consultants. The principle is that effective management, that is control, can only be achieved if authority is vested along with responsibility in the delegation process. If this rule is broken, the management of projects will never be effective on a permanent basis. This is more important than anything else in project- or programmes-management theory. © 1993.
