Project management

In extremely broad terms, very, very generally, it means "project management", usually in a sub-contracting context (be that literally to an entirely separate legal entity or simply getting another department in the same organisation to do the work, e.g. the business 'contracting' the IT dept to build an application for them).
More precise variants exist for specific contexts (e.g. referring specifically to construction, or whatever the project involves)

Do a kudoz search on "maitrise" and you'll see many suggestions.
