PMJ Practitioner Insights is a series of short, empirically relevant articles that disseminate research findings to project practitioners and also benefit academics and students in the field of project management. The series features condensed versions of academic research papers in a language accessible to non-academic readers. The series bridges the gap between academia and practice by providing actionable insights from research that busy project, program, and portfolio managers can apply in their work.

The series is an initiative of the Project Management Institute (PMI), the leading professional association for project management. PMI is committed to advancing the project management profession through research, education, and advocacy. PMJ Practitioner Insights is one of the ways PMI is fulfilling its mission to provide value to its members and the wider project management community.

The articles in the series cover a wide range of contemporary topics related to the management of projects, programs, and portfolios of projects, including leadership, communication, risk management, and governance. Each article is authored by the researchers who conducted the particular study in the respective topic area. The articles are selected based on their authors’ expertise and the relevance of their research to practitioners, students, and academics.

As such, PMJ Practitioner Insights are short, two-page summaries of academic, peer-reviewed research papers published in Project Management Journal®, one of the leading research journals in project management. The peer-review process ensures meeting the highest standards of quality and rigor and involves a panel of experts in project management who evaluate, over multiple reviews, the articles for their accuracy, rigor, and relevance.

PMJ Practitioner Insight articles are freely available on the Project Management Journal’s website. By reading the articles in this series, practitioners can gain valuable insights that can help them improve performance and achieve better outcomes in their projects.

In summary, the PMJ Practitioner Insights series is a valuable resource for practitioners in project management who want to stay informed about the latest research in their field. The series provides concise and easy-to-read articles that distill the key findings of academic research into actionable insights that practitioners can apply with their teams in their work.
