Mapping the dynamics of the project management field
project management in action (part 1)
In this next series of “From the Editor,” I am going to present the results of ongoing research undertaken in order to investigate the dynamic of evolution of the field of project management. Focusing on the role within and between organizations of the project/program/portfolio management discipline to design and implement strategy as a source of competitive advantage leads me to question the scientific field behind this discipline. This science should be the basis for the development and use of research of bodies of knowledge, standards, certification programs, education, and competencies, and beyond this as a source of value for people, organizations, and society.
