Preview

The Oxford Handbook of Project Management presents and discusses leading ideas in the management of projects. Positioning project management as a domain much broader and more strategic than simply “execution management”, this book draws on the insights of over forty scholars to chart the development of the subject over the last fifty years or more as an area of increasing practical and academic interest. It suggests we could be entering an emerging “third wave” of analysis and interpretation following its early technical and operational beginnings and the subsequent shift to a focus on projects and their management. Topics dealt with include: the historical evolution of the subject; its theoretical base; professionalism; business and societal context; strategy; organization; governance; innovation; overruns; risk; information management; procurement; relationships and trust; knowledge management; practice and teams.

Keywords: execution management; third wave; analysis; interpretation; professionalism; business; strategy; organization; governance; innovation; overruns; risk; information management; procurement; relationships; trust; knowledge management; practice; teams
