Project Organising

Project and program management is a growing area of research interest as organizations switch to project-based forms of working. There is growing concern for the performance of projects as they grow in scale and complexity. This SIG is focused on projects and programs defined as temporary organizations with a goal and pre-determined life-cycle. The Project Organizing SIG is concerned with project-based organizations: firms or public sector agencies organized to promote and/or deliver projects.

The purpose of Project Organizing SIG is to promote the creation and diffusion of knowledge in relation to project organizing. The ambition is to develop a global project organizing research community leaning on management and organization disciplines like strategy, entrepreneurship, organization theory, organizational behavior and institutional theory, but also open to contributions from other disciplines. It therefore aims to stimulate discussion about a variety of topics related to the organization of projects and programs across all sectors.
