  5. 5. Context + Mechanism = Output Tilley (2000) characterised three different investigative areas that should be addressed:  Context: What conditions are needed for a measure to trigger one or more mechanisms to produce a particular outcome? The context area is characterised as being fixed. Traditionally, Project Methodologies are placed within a context to achieve the project outcomes.  Mechanism: How does the particular measure lead to a particular outcome in a given context? The mechanism area is characterised as being flexible. Traditionally, best practice approaches are used as variable tools to achieve the project outcome. Although, there is also evidence that some project place the methodology and best practice approaches as a context which is fixed.  Outcome: What are the outputs achieved which have produced the outcome by using causal mechanisms within a given context. This area will eventually lead to the project benefits. Current Problem
  6. 6. Knowledge Based View of the Firm “…for countries in the vanguard of the world economy, the balance between knowledge and resources has shifted so far towards the former that knowledge has become perhaps the most important factor determining the standard of living – more than, tools and labour”.
