On 27 June, three members of the academic community were recognized for their contributions to research in the profession with the 2019 PMI Project Management Journal Paper of the Year Award.

The Project Management Journal Paper of the Year Award honors the best paper published in the Project Management Journal in the previous year. The award recognizes the significance of academic research and the importance of refereed journal articles to the creation and dissemination of knowledge in the field of project management.

The winning paper was “Coordinating Knowledge Work in Multiteam Programs: Findings From a Large-Scale Agile Development Program,” appearing in the November/December 2018 issue (Volume 49, number 6).

The paper was authored by Professor Torgier Dingsøyr, chief scientist at the SINTEF research foundation in Trondheim, Norway, and adjunct professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology; Nils Brede Moe, senior scientist at SINTEF; and Eva Amdahl Seim, a senior research manager at SINTEF.

“I think this award is a sign of the growing interest in project management practices which have developed in software development, and which become increasingly relevant also for other domains with the current importance of digitalization,” said Dingsøyr.

“As the study is understood as a significant contribution to the field of large-scale agile and agile transformation, the award will motivate for more studies within the same topic,” explained Moe.

Seim added, “We have been researching coordination in work and particularly software work for two decades. To me, this award is recognition of years of hard and gratifying work.”

This recognition took place during the European Academy of Management (EURAM) Conference in Lisbon, Portugal, at the ISCTE-IUL University. The award was presented to Professor Dingsøyr on the evening of 27 June at a reception for the EURAM Project Organising Strategic Interest Group, sponsored by PMI.
