Description:Large projects, especially in the construction and infrastructure sectors, involve collaborations of many different types, such as built-own-operate, public-private partnership or competitive dialogue. This monograph details the authors’ research on the types of collaborative projects; how they vary in different parts of the world; what sort of knowledge, skills, attributes and experience are necessary to deliver these projects; and how any identified gaps can be bridged. Recommendations are made based on interviews with 36 subject matter experts from several countries, as well as an extensive literature review.

Description:
The routes project managers have taken to their careers vary as much as their backgrounds and experiences, which is to say that their paths resemble a collection of unchartered roads rather than a freeway.

The track to a career in project management is seldom a direct one. The question of what project managers learn and how this learning takes place therefore becomes central to documenting the development paths of project managers and taking the next steps toward professionalization of the field.

Description:
Many government projects and programs are prolonged for years, failing to meet the projects’ objectives, wasting taxpayers’ money, or they are abruptly terminated in the midst of planning or implementation.

Government funded projects and programs set out to achieve national growth and enhance the lives of citizens. They are ubiquitous—and notoriously unwieldy.

Drawing on an impressive array of large-scale government projects gleaned from government audit reports across three major sectors—infrastructure and transportation, information systems, and defense—this study explains why government projects go wrong and what can be done to improve their success rates.

Description:
While organizational change is often recognized as a distinct type of project or program, most projects require some degree of organizational and behavioral change. The degree of change will most likely be higher in projects and programs designed to achieve organizational change. Yet, projects designed for other outcomes often require structural change in order to achieve the desired result. Based on the results of a quantitative research study, this book demonstrates that project and program management professionals appear to be embracing change implementation practices, even when change processes are not included in project performance goals and objectives.

Author:Guilherme Biesek, Nuno Gil, PhD
Description:How do project teams overcome differences to adopt a design plan that strikes a balance between short-term affordability and long-term adaptability? In the book, Building Options at Project Front-End Strategizing: The Power of Capital Design for Evolvability, Guilherme Biesek and Nuno Gil cite research indicating the need for a formal framework to develop front-end strategies that ensure cost-effective management of the project through future change.

Biesek and Gil found limitations in the current practices and theory for management of capital projects, and turned to real options reasoning and design literature. Project teams often resort to real options reasoning, because investment in design flexibility is similar to buying options.
If future changes are minimal or favorable the options can be exercised to adapt the design economically. In the event the future is not favorable to the project, a limited investment has been lost.

Description:
By virtue of their unique nature, projects are mired in uncertainty. And many project managers would tell you that this uncertainty represents risk. In The Silver Lining of Project Uncertainties researchers from two prestigious universities, put forth the idea that uncertainty isn't a risk to be avoided . . . it's an opportunity to be exploited.

Description:Join project management researcher-practitioners from Pennsylvania State University and the Stevens Institute of Technology as they go inside five different organizations from across the business spectrum in search of the answers. These dramatically different organizations, which ranged from financial services and telecommunications, to technology and government-based R&D, all shared one thing: the reliance upon effective project portfolio management for their success. In this landmark study, researchers were granted unprecedented access to reams of internal project documentation and hours of one-on-one time with key personnel, from C-Suite and project management executives to front-line staff. This enabled the team to assemble the inside story of how project portfolios were actually managed in each of these organizations, and identify what worked and what didn't. Using this understanding and a comprehensive literature review as a foundation, they created an empirically grounded definition of project portfolio management effectiveness that can be applied to organizations of all kinds. They were then able to identify the five critical process, organizational, and human factors that impact project portfolio management effectiveness and propose common-sense criteria for accurately measuring it.

Description:Organizations often focus on short-term results, such as immediate financial goals. However, projects are expected to achieve results that link back to an organization’s overall business strategy. This apparent discrepancy led researchers to ask: What does it mean to link project management strategy to business strategy?
