Project Management Institute

Success, learning, and risk

This issue of Project Management Journal® offers insightful views on three major intertwined themes: success, learning, and risk. The first article proposes a new conceptualization of success factors within a project decision chain. Very complementary to project success are three articles, which bring our attention to different facets of education in project management. Two articles focus on the role of onsite project management learning, whereas the other one compares engineering education in project management in two different countries. Finally, there are three articles concerned with risks -- all three having strong pragmatic implications for project success in three different situations: public - private partnerships, infrastructure projects, rework projects, and green retrofit projects.
