Our “Getting Under the Hood” series continues with a webinar that explores how projects operate within a larger system for value delivery. Value often has different meanings dependent on the mission and vision of a given organization. The unique characteristics of projects determine the best approach for carrying out the work of the project. The PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition recognizes the presence of these interdependent and interrelated systems and provides project teams with the needed flexibility to conduct the work of the project in a way that enables the desired outcomes from the project.

The world is changing rapidly – driven by global economic, political, demographic and technological trends. Adapting to change requires a constant assessment and adaptation through critical thinking and decision making. As project practitioners make decisions on their projects, they need to be aware of inherent biases and fallacies that can lead to less-the-optimal decisions. Among these, to name a few, are framing effect, anchoring bias, and correlation versus causation confusion. This session explores examples of these decision fallacies and more, and shows how the PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition can be useful in re-thinking the decision-making process.

The importance of governance in Portfolios, Programs, and Projects (3P) is reflected in part by the development of standards for governance (PMI, 2016) as well as by the increasing attention being paid to governance in management/academic literature, and in practice. At the same time, organizations increasingly aim to improve their innovation capabilities, enabling them to survive in today’s dynamic, competitive environment. However, there is little guidance in research literature on whether and how 3P governance can be designed to support and promote innovation. The escalating importance of project delivery in organizations, especially for innovation, further highlights the need for better understanding of the relationship between governance, innovation, and success in 3P.
Governance is of increasing importance for 3P success from an organizational perspective, and multiple studies have highlighted the need for it to be appropriate for the environment. Large-scale studies show that effective oversight by executive management promotes and nurtures innovation. However, some studies also suggest that this could also cause negative tension, as innovation requires flexible and adaptable approaches. To better understand innovation as applied to 3P, and how governance approaches can be tailored for best outcomes, we conducted an in-depth, exploratory, multiple-case study.
This report outlines the background, our research question, our methodology and our main findings. We also identify the outputs of this research that are designed to disseminate the findings to both academic and practitioner audiences. We emphasize our implications for practice, providing guidance to industry for the development of governance approaches to best support innovation in 3P.

Interorganizational networks for joint project execution increase in popularity, as they allow for efficient use of scarce and specialized resources. These networks are typically hybrid designs, including hierarchies and network structures, which need to be governed simultaneously. That poses a challenge to traditional governance theories, which typically assume either a hierarchical or a network structure, but not a mix of it.
