Several Notes on the Existential Hermeneutic Phenomenology for Project Management and Possibilities of Its Extension by Other Existential Concepts

Case Study From the Research Project Team

In this article, we follow up the approach of employing existential hermeneutic phenomenology (EHP) (Rolfe et al., 2016) published in Project Management Journal® and we show that this innovative method, useful in managerial self-development, represents an important tool for learning not only in the private sector, but also in public research projects where managerial skills are required. In this article, we propose an extended EHP framework that includes the original ideas of phenomenologists Fink and Patočka. We present the results of our interpretative phenomenological analysis study, where issues of communication and interpersonal relationships emerge as key problems in project work.
