The S&T tree is the organizer of all the knowledge gained by analyzing an organization using the other thinking processes. The logical structure of the S&T tree guides organizational focus – starting from the highest objective, the S&T tree logically derives which actions must be taken in which order at all levels of the organization.An S&T tree provides the roadmap to build, capitalize, and sustain a decisive competitive edge.

The S&T Tree for Project Management was created for organizations that manage projects and that want to create a decisive competitive edge based on reliability. An organization that delivers projects is highly reliable when it consistently finishes projects within the time frame, specifications and budget. In some instances, customers require urgent delivery. The “cherry on the cake” of a Projects Decisive Competitive Edge is achieved when an organization, contrary to its competitors, is also able to deliver earlier to satisfy immediate customer needs.
