Scope and purpose
The Project Organising SIG aims to promote state of the art thinking, creation of knowledge and facilitation of debate on all aspects related to project organising. We intend to enhance the scholarly and managerial understanding of projects, programmes, megaprojects as well as project-based organisations by providing a platform for dialogue, collaboration and networking. Our ambition is to build an open global and divers community of researchers interested in the organisation of projects across all sectors and disciplines. By doing so we will be able to move our discipline forward and attract contributions from new and established scholars.
We promote the creation and diffusion of knowledge in relation to project organizing. Our 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. We therefore aim to stimulate discussion about a variety of topics related to the organization of projects and programs across all sectors.
The Project Organising Track has a close cooperation with the four leading Project Management journals.
