Abstract Multi-project management is increasing as an organizing mode in the workplace. However, it leads to multiple issues for project workers, such as intense pressure and work overload. This paper explores how project workers experience work overload in a multi-project context, especially regarding practices that contribute to maintaining or preventing it. It builds on a case study of a financial institution in which employees are assigned to many projects at the same time. Findings uncover ...

Abstract A project's autonomy, the degree to which a project can evolve without constant interference from the parent organization, is a key feature of innovation projects. The literature treats autonomy as a passive phenomenon and underestimates how projects as temporary organizations interact with more permanent forms of organizations. A dynamic and contextually sensitive understanding of project autonomy is valuable; autonomy can change over the course of the project's lifecycle and evolve in...

Abstract Project learning is a function of individuals’ internal cognitive processes, interpretation and integration of learning at the team and project level, and the organization's ability to institutionalize learning into practices. However, understanding of how learning unfolds between these levels remains limited. Using a single in-depth case study, this paper reports on how learning occurs between levels in a global project-based organization (PBO). Six bridging mechanisms are identified: ...

Abstract Companies increasingly support their project portfolio management processes with specific software, and the market for IT solutions is growing. While project portfolio management information systems (PPMIS) promise to improve the quality of the management process and eventually portfolio performance, it is unclear whether they actually deliver on this promise. We lack empirical evidence regarding the actual benefits of PPMIS and knowledge on the conditions under which PPMIS application ...

Abstract The negotiation costs for project participants to resolve conflicts significantly undermine the project performance, but how to reduce these costs remains largely unexplored. This study proposes that risk allocation in the contract between the client and contractor will impact the conflict negotiation costs and managerial controls of the client will moderate this relationship. Hypotheses were tested with a sample of 226 projects collected from Chinese construction firms. The results sho...

Abstract Research on infrastructure megaprojects and community engagement is increasingly concerned with the cognitive factors that underpin engagement processes and actions. The ability of project teams to take the perspective of local communities is an important influence on how community engagement occurs. However this involves project teams confronting contradictions and tensions between local community perspectives and their own. Understanding how project teams respond to tensions between a...

Abstract We propose a model consisting of five people-factors that influence the success of on-going agile software development projects, success being measured in terms of cost, time, and customer satisfaction. After surveying 216 agile practitioners, the results obtained using SEM-PLS suggest that “team capability” and “customer involvement” are the main factors contributing to the success of on-going agile software development projects. These results were triangulated with the mixed-methods a...

Abstract Many studies agree that owner organisations are important for successful project organising, but they tend to focus on particular aspects of project organising rather than providing a holistic analysis of owners as organisations. Our objective is to collect evidence of the full range of challenges public sector owners face in managing their major projects. After reviewing the literature on owner organisations, we carry out a case survey of 26 major projects to identify the principal cha...
