Abstract We employ design science research to develop a process model for the management of globally distributed software development (GDSD) projects. The model provides guidance for transforming established project frameworks in organizations to cope with additional challenges that a global project scale entails. The model integrates extant GDSD project management knowledge and makes it actionable for project managers, especially those with limited GDSD experience. The model was evaluated and f...

Abstract Project-based organizations face challenges of increasing skill shortages and risks of reducing competitiveness and performance. Leveraging female talent can improve organizational competitiveness and outcomes. Drawing on the resource-based view of the firm and contingency theory, we predict that the impact of women in management on organizational performance will be stronger in project-based organizations than in non-project-based organizations. Using a sample of 932 private organizati...

Abstract This paper examines how to design project control modes to improve knowledge integration under different types of uncertainty. Uncertainty can be the precondition of project control choice, and it gives rise to the differing relations between project control (behavior, outcome, clan and self) and knowledge integration. We have conducted a multiple case study from the engineering, software, machinery and infrastructure industries, and examined the project controls design effectively deal...

Abstract Engaged scholarship is frequently being advocated to bridge the knowledge gap between academic scholars and project practitioners. Through the methodology of engaged scholarship academics establish a reciprocal relationship with the project community while adhering to the standards of quality scholarship. Notwithstanding its growing popularity, in project studies we do not learn much about the practices involved in engaged scholarship, neither is the concept theoretically well developed...

Abstract Economies of recombination (ER) are seen as a way for firms to capitalize on previous knowledge creation, but the process that enables them to be accessed by firms is not clear in the literature. To date, temporary organization (TO) theory has focused on the process through the ‘transition’ concept via two units of analysis: within the project, and from a TO to a permanent organization (PO). Based on 67 interviews with inter-organizational project managers and four clusters, this resear...

Abstract: Stakeholder empowerment can be viewed as both a condition and a process. It is a condition where stakeholders are given the authority to act, choice of actions, and control over decisions and resources is held by them rather than the donor agencies or organization. The objectives of the study was to ascertain the influence of stakeholder empowerment on sustainability of SCPs in TVETs in western Kenya, to establish the moderating effect of knowledge sharing on sustainability of SCPs in ...
Abstract This article offers an international development perspective on project management. A brief history of the ambitious and controversial role that projects have played over seven decades of development assistance in diverse operational contexts evokes many of the themes vividly articulated by the flourishing contemporary project management literature. They highlight the limitations of conventional project management practices dominated by Management by Objectives principles. Development e...

Abstract Several studies have investigated projectification and its effects at the firm level, but the macroeconomic implications of project work have scarcely been considered. This paper analyzes the macroeconomic effects of firm-level projectification. We study the interlinkages between different sectors by extending standard input-output modeling and analyze the static and dynamic effects of projectification. The results indicate that projectification can have positive macroeconomic implicati...
