The management of a modern railway is a complex challenging task because most modern railways are very large multi-faceted organisations with many stakeholders, not the least of which in Australia are state and federal governments, regulators, and of course customers. Management not only includes keeping the business going financially but also market analysis, service delivery, asset management and safety management.
