The paper aims to revive an interest in the notion of responsible project management education (RPME) in the context of related contemporary debates about: the integration of reflexivity, ethics and sustainability in business schools’ curricula; the purpose, values and effectiveness of university education; and practical relevance of business and management courses, to mention only a few. We offer an interpretation of what RPME at university level may mean, concerning the practice of curriculum ...

In this paper, we argue that it is opportune to revisit profound questions about the purpose, nature and value of higher education in society at a juncture where the context of higher education has been significantly influenced by the global sustainability agenda and responsible management education imperatives (United Nations (UN) Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN Global Compact, UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development ...

This paper introduces Existential Hermeneutic Phenomenology (EHP) as an approach to reflecting on and studying the lived experience of project management practice. We argue that an EHP way of being is an effective approach for any practitioner confronted by significant existential disruptions to their practice. We develop our proposition of ‘the wisdom of conversations’ as an EHP enabled way for project managers’ practical coping with otherwise potentially inhibiting existential disruptions. We ...

The central premise of this chapter is to offer a conceptual framework for making sense of the sustainability agenda in an educational environment from multiple perspectives. The focus is on the complex interface between the global ecological crisis and economic growth. Ethical considerations are argued to be necessary in examining the contradictions and risks associated with polarized definitions of problems and with globally entertained solutions. The proposed framework encourages the question...

In this chapter, we argue that one of the reasons of resisting the temptation of teaching what ‘we could do and perhaps should not do’ (Eco, 2014 [1980], 107) in university Business Schools is the emphasis on the application of theories to the exclusion of theorizing. We argue that Business Schools in the future should engage in and contribute to the intellectual practice of academic theorizing and not merely to be places of reproduction, application and enumeration of theories.

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between project-based organizing and the initiatives labelled as “development” by critically engaging with some unchallenged assumptions inherent in the notion of both projects as a means through which social change can be achieved and the wider possibility of delivering social good as an objective of development. Design/methodology/approach – From a phenomenologically informed critical participatory perspective the authors focus...
