Bridging the Fields of Careers and Project Management

Projects have become one of the most common ways of organizing work in organizations (Bakker, 2010| Bakker et al., 2016). They are the major means by which organizations structure and deliver both operational and strategic objectives (Chipulu et al., 2019| Ojiako et al., 2015), and projects also represent the means by which visions are operationalized (Maylor et al., 2018). Hence, projects are of insurmountable value to any organization (Parvan et al., 2015). In fact, scholars highlight that projects have evolved from being an organizational concern to playing a much more important role within society. As Jensen et al. (2016) observed, "Projects have become omnipresent not only in the economy but also in our society and our lives" (p. 21). In parallel, considering the scholarly development of research and teaching in project management, project management has clearly developed into a rich and multidisciplinary field of scientific research.
