How Digitalization Affects Project Management – Evidence from Two Case Studies in the Construction Industry

Sep 24, 2019 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)

Digital transformation is a phenomenon occurring across sectors and nations, affecting not only technical processes, but also organizational forms and managerial practices. Among them are: (1) project-based organizations (PBOs), common in traditional sectors like the construction industry, and (2) project networks (PNWs), the most favorable form of project organizing in modern service and creative industries. Project management, which is often used as an agent for change, plays a significant role in initiating and implementing digital transformation. To analyze the digital transformation of traditional PBOs and modern PNWs, comparative case studies in the context of commercial construction have been conducted in Sweden and in Germany.

Governance of Innovation in Portfolios, Programs and Projects

Apr 3, 2019 3:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

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.

Project Governance: From Data to Recommendations to Action or Inaction

Jan 15, 2019 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)

Assurance reviews are essential to the overall good governance of major public projects and programs; in this webinar, we explore some of the challenges around framing and implementing assurance review recommendations during the life-cycle. PMI have funded a research study led by The University of Hull, which seeks to uncover how the treatment of assurance review data influences recommendations and the subsequent actions (or inactions) that arise, using a definitive set of data. During the webinar, we will discuss some of the implications arising from the findings of this study, explore suggestions for improving current assurance processes in practice and identify recommendations for future research.

La valeur ajoutée de la participation publique à vos projets

Nov 13, 2018 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Il n'est pas toujours facile d'orienter les efforts d'une grande variété de partenaires dans une même direction. Encore plus lorsque les citoyens et les citoyennes, des parties prenantes à part entière, sont touchés directement par les projets mis de l'avant. Que ce soit des projets ayant un impact sur leur milieu de vie ou qui concernent des enjeux sociaux importants, leur apport peut être inestimable pour qui leur laisse la chance de participer. La participation publique, un processus qui permet de se connecter aux citoyens et citoyennes, ajoute de la valeur aux projets à bien des niveaux. Cette conférence vous permettra d'apprécier les avantages de la participation publique pour vos projets. C'est à partir d'un exemple, la démarche sur l'éducation à la petite enfance, projet primé lors du Concours Élixir, que vous pourrez apprécier ce que signifie la participation publique, sa mise en oeuvre et son impact !
