About the Authors
  • In recent years, organizational project management (OPM) has emerged as a field focused on how project, program and portfolio management practices strategically help firms realize organizational goals. There is a compelling need to address the totality of project-related work at the organizational level, providing a view of organizations as a network of projects to be coordinated among themselves, integrated by the more permanent organization, and to move away from a focus on individual projects. This comprehensive volume provides views from a wide range of international scholars researching OPM at a cross-disciplinary level. It covers concepts, theories and practices from disciplines allied to management, such as strategic management, organization sciences and behavioural science. It will be a valuable read for scholars and practitioners alike, who are looking to enrich their understanding of OPM and further investigate this new phenomenon.

    • A multi-disciplinary approach that covers structural, organizational and people aspects of organizational project management (OPM) while also illustrating various facets of OPM in practice
    • The composition and breadth of expert perspectives provided in the chapters help readers navigate through the complex issues that organizations face in OPM
    • Promotes innovative ideas to integrate, manage and structure project management-related activities at various levels in an organization

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book is both serious and inspiring; its presentation of organizational project management will satisfy even the most demanding readers. The very diverse chapter contents highlight the scope and importance of this new field of research and professional practice. Kudos to the three editors, who were able to recruit the most respected experts in this domain!' Mario Bourgault, Polytechnique Montréal, Canada

    'The Cambridge Handbook on Organisational Project Management sets a new standard of knowledge for anyone involved in the challenge of implementing the concept of a project-based organization by integrating all project, program and portfolio related activities within the entire organization.' Yvonne Schoper, Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft, Berlin and Member of the Presidential Advisory Board of GPM Deutsche Gesellschaft für Projektmanagement e.V

    'I would argue that this book makes a valuable contribution with new materials for those interested in OPM and project work. It takes an organisational-level perspective in the main and fills a number of gaps in the current book-level literature. … I would recommend that this book be considered as a serious reference book and that for many students and practitioners that this would be a highly valuable resource.' Derek Walker, International Journal of Managing Projects in Business
