Deadline for paper submissions: 28 February 2018

Teaching Cases

Project management practitioners, experts and researchers around the world are invited to submit original works for publication in the PMWJ related to any aspect of program or project management.   Questions or original works can be emailed to [email protected]

Since August 2012, more than 2200 original works by 939 different authors in 65+ countries have been published in the PMWJ. Those works are now contained in the “PM World Collection” in the PM World Library (PMWL) at http://www.pmworldlibrary.net/. All authors whose work appears in the PMWJ receive an author page in the PMWL Author Showcase where their works can be found and easily accessed. Each month’s new works are featured on the PMWL home page.

According to Managing Editor David Pells, “July represents a significant milestone for the journal, our five year anniversary. We’ve tried to publish articles and papers in formats that can be useful for people and organizations in many industries and locations around the world. Based on feedback from authors and readers, it seems to be working.”

“Just as importantly, we offer professionals and experts a vehicle for sharing knowledge and receiving recognition,” Pells adds. “Too many websites publish good content but don’t identify the authors, which I don’t think is right. The creators of new knowledge should be duly recognized for their contributions. I also don’t think content should be separated from the authors, whose backgrounds and experience often provide important context for whatever is written.”

Researchers and practicing professionals are invited to submit an original article or paper for publication in the PM World Journal. For author guidelines, visit http://pmworldjournal.net/authors/author-guidelines/. All works published in the PMWJ are archived in the PM World Library.

Call for Papers on Agility in Project Management

 

P/PM CALLS FOR PAPERS

PM World Journal invites articles and papers about agile program and project management processes and experience

26 April 2017 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Project management practitioners, experts and researchers around the world are invited to submit original works for publication in the PM World Journal related to agility in program or project management.   Articles and papers are sought that describe experience, best practices, issues and solutions related to managing projects with agility, or using agile techniques.

Since the Agile Manifesto was published in 2001 for managing software projects, Agile project management has grown in popularity around the world, not only for software development but across most information systems/technology and many other industries. While Agile PM generally remains most useful for relatively small teams, and sometimes multiple small teams, it has stimulated widespread interest in the broader use of more “agility” in program and project management.

What does agility really mean in the program/project management context?  What are some examples of agile decision making, organizations where it has been employed, or successful agile project management?  What are the trade-offs, the risks or rewards?  When or where should agility be increased or too much agility be avoided?  Answers to these and many other questions are welcome.

Submitted works for publication can be in any of the following categories:

  • Featured Papers – research based, conference quality, professional papers
  • Student Papers – research reports or papers created for university courses
  • Case Studies – descriptions of real world applications of Agile or agility
  • Advisory Articles – how to implement agile or improve agility
  • Commentaries – short opinion pieces on any related topic
  • Personal Story – discussion of personal experience
  • Creative Works – art, fiction, play, poetry or other imaginative creation
  • Second Edition – previously published paper, if author retains copyright

Questions or original works can be submitted to [email protected].

According to Managing Editor David Pells, “There remains quite a lot of debate about the applicability of Agile project management for many industries and types of projects.  The concept of agility, however, would seem to be widely useful.  Maybe we can attract some knowledge or perspective on this topic.”

“Many traditional project management models and standards are based on well-established project lifecycle models and systematic approaches,” Pells adds.  “For some projects and organizations, agility and/or agile project management might then carry more risks. So what does experience show?”

Researchers, practitioners and experts are invited to submit an original article or paper for publication in the PM World Journal.  For author guidelines, visit http://pmworldjournal.net/authors/author-guidelines/. All works published in the PMWJ are archived in the PM World Library.

The PM World Journal (PMWJ) is a web-based monthly publication featuring dozens of articles, papers and stories about programs, projects and project management around the world. The PMWJ is registered with the US Library of Congress (ISSN 2330-4480) and is indexed by EBSCO, the world’s largest provider of databases for corporations, libraries and schools. To read the latest edition, go to www.pmworldjournal.net.

The PMWJ is produced by PM World, which also maintains the PM World Library (PMWL), a global resource for continuous learning in portfolio, program and project management (P/PM).  To learn more, visit www.pmworldlibrary.net.

Editor’s note: We do not publish topic-specific editions of the PM World Journal.  Works received in response to this call for papers can be published at any time in the future, so please consider emailing an article or paper on this topic now or later to [email protected]

Call for Short Papers for 5th IPMA Research Conference in November

 

CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS

Research conference in Incheon, Korea on theme: “Project, Management and Success – do we need a wider understanding?

1 February 2017 – Zurich, Switzerland – The Research Board of the International Project Management Association (IPMA) has issued a call for short papers for the 5th IPMA Research Conference being held in Incheon, Korea during 2-3 November 2017. The theme for the conference is “Projects, Management and Success – do we need a wider understanding?”

The IPMA Research Conference was founded in 2013, and as a Think Tank it aims to bring researchers, experts, scholars and practitioners in project management together who share a common passion for their discipline. During the conference, they will discuss and exchange research ideas and achievements on the topic of projects and its management. The distinctive feature of this small in size conference is the intense dialogue between practitioners and academics which can neither be found at scientific or professional conferences.

The annual International Conference has been held in Germany, China, South Africa and Iceland since its beginning and aims to bring together experts from all countries worldwide to increase the mutual understanding of the global challenges of project managers in various environments and industries. The special spirit of the IPMA Research Conferences can be particularly felt in the World Café sessions where the participants can gain new insight perspectives for today´s challenges in project management.

5th IPMA Research Conference 2017

The theme of the 2017 IPMA Research Conference is “Projects, Management and Success – do we need a wider understanding?” Project management has continuously developed in the last decades like no other management discipline. But although the requirements towards project managers further developed, the definition of success in projects and in project management has remained stable during this time.

Project Management distinguishes between project success (measured against the overall objectives of the project, and a high level of satisfaction concerning the project outcome among the key stakeholders) and project management success (measured against the measures of performance as scope, time and budget).

However success has different meanings to the people as it is linked to culture and values. Success is perceived differently by different stakeholders, or in the different sciences: the macro-economic meaning of success differs from the micro-economic, success in sociology is perceived differently than in psychology, and an individual perceives success differently than a group, an organisation or a society.

The 5th IPMA Research Conference is an opportunity to examine if our understanding of successful projects and their management needs to be worked over. Projects are the means for delivering and implementing strategic beneficial change in organisations and societies. Is the current success definition broad enough to reflect this thinking? As most projects today are part of programs and portfolios, the definition of Project Management success is also to be reflected in a wider sense. Project management success can be considered from input and output oriented perspective, concerning the success criteria and success factors. Do the different stakeholder groups (e.g. the individual project manager, the project team members, the organisation and the whole society) have a different understanding of success?

The 4th IPMA Research Conference 2016 on “Project Management and Sustainability” showed that we need to define success in a more sustainable way to achieve a new way of thinking. Sustainability defined by the UN as “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” forces us to re-think success, both for projects, project managers, organisations and societies. The scope of the 5th IPMA Research Conference 2017 is therefore to explore if the current definition of project and project management success sufficiently reflects the needs of future generations.

This call for short papers is meant to encourage a broad range of submissions. The authors are encouraged to reach beyond the usual boundaries of the project domain, and to embrace innovative approaches to defining and developing our understanding of projects and their management.

Subtopics

  • Sustainability and success
  • Ethics and success
  • Culture and success
  • Value/contribution to society and success
  • Others

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit proposals for short presentations of their work in progress, new ideas or recent results. We encourage submissions from all areas related to project management. Short papers should be of no more than 500 words. Authors of accepted short papers will be expected to provide a full paper by May 31, 2017 and to present their ideas in a presentation at the Research Conference.

The short papers should be formatted according to APA/Harvard guidelines and include:

  • Title
  • Abstract (maximum of 200 words)
  • Short presentations of the content
  • References
  • Biographical details of the author

Please submit a pdf of your short paper by March 31, 2017 to: [email protected]

Notification of the outcome of the review process will be on April 19, 2017.

PM RESEARCH NEWS

The Modern Project: Mindsets, Toolsets, and Theoretical Frameworks – Papers due 31 January 2016 for world’s foremost project management research conference

23 September 2016 – Boston, MA, USA – During 11-14 June 2017, the IRNOP conference will be hosted by Metropolitan College, a multi-disciplinary school within Boston University (BU). Metropolitan College is globally recognized for the excellence and academic rigor of its project management programs, and for its pioneering stance in the development of online education.

160923-pmwj51-irnop-bu-logoIRNOP, the International Research Network on Organizing by Projects, is the world’s largest network of academic researchers in the program and project management field.  In keeping with its vibrant international spirit, the bi-annual IRNOP conference has been held in 12 cities across the globe since it began. This is the first time that the IRNOP conference has been held in the USA.

A “Call for Papers” has now been issued for the INOP 2017 research conference, the largest of its kind.  IRNOP 2017 website: http://irnopboston.org/

IRNOP 2017 theme

The theme of the 2017 IRNOP conference is The Modern Project: Mindsets, Toolsets, and Theoretical Frameworks. Project management is evolving, and over the last two decades it has shifted from a set of tools that could assist in the execution of actions, to a more complex and dynamic set of process-based and behaviorally-based activities, underpinned by a growing and significant body of research. The modern understanding of the project domain embraces complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty in turbulent environments, and has moved towards an

alignment with broader academic concepts, including complex adaptive systems, operations management, improvisational working practices, and evidence-based management.

IRNOP 2017 is an opportunity to examine the progress made in developing, synthesizing, and challenging the increasing body of knowledge and theory in the project domain, and to assess the current standing of the project-based knowledge base. It may also be an opportune moment to increase our linkages to wider organizational theory, and to consider project management’s interactions with knowledge management and knowledge generation, with change management, with organizational behavior and theory, and with other academic domains. At IRNOP 2017 we also offer the opportunity to examine the research-based foundations for the management of the modern project.

The scope of this call for papers is deliberately drawn widely, to encourage a range of submissions covering many topics and themes, including behavioral and process areas, tools and techniques, and theoretical frameworks. Authors are encouraged to reach beyond the usual boundaries of the project domain, and to embrace innovative approaches to defining and developing our understanding of the modern project.

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit full papers of no more than 8,000 words. Papers should be formatted according to APA/Harvard guidelines and include:

  • Title page
  • Abstract [200 words or less]
  • Keywords
  • References
  • Illustrations and tables, with captions
  • Biographical details for each author

Please submit a pdf of your full paper to [email protected] by 31st January 2017.

Call for Papers on Project Management in Healthcare

 

PM World Journal invites articles and papers about present practice and future project management in health services, hospitals and the medical field

16 September 2016 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Project management practitioners, experts and researchers around the world are invited to submit original works for publication in the PM World Journal related to planning and managing programs and projects in healthcare.  Articles and papers are sought that describe experience, best practices, issues and solutions related to managing projects in the health services and medical field, including hospitals and health networks.

160916-pmwj51-healthcare-imageHealthcare and medical treatment are basic necessities for all societies, and represent a huge part of every country’s annual budget and GDP.  In developing economies with young populations, massive investment is needed for provision of basic services.  In countries with aging populations, including many in Asia, Europe and North America, costs and budgets are increasing apace.

In addition, innovation and technology are leading to thousands of projects to introduce new products and services and to upgrade facilities and systems.

Subjects for original articles, research papers or case studies might include planning, implementing and managing projects related to:

  • Emergency health and medical services and treatment;
  • New healthcare facilities and services in rural areas;
  • New facilities and services for aging populations;
  • New hospitals, clinics and medical networks;
  • New healthcare systems and services;
  • New medical information systems;
  • New technologies and solutions;
  • New products;
  • Others

Questions or original works can be submitted to [email protected].

According to Managing Editor David Pells, “Last year it was Ebola that scared the world, leading to emergency responses, massive investments, procedural changes in many hospitals in most countries, and scaring many.  This year, the Zika virus has emerged as a pandemic in equatorial countries, including the Caribbean and Latin America.  This is one example of where many projects and project management are needed in health care.”

“In many countries as the population ages, we will see many more healthcare programs and projects that need professional project management,” Pells adds.  “This is already a huge industry in the United States, with growth projected for decades to come.  We need to grow a robust body of knowledge for managing programs and projects related to healthcare and medical treatment.”

Researchers, practitioners and experts are invited to submit an original article or paper for publication in the PM World Journal.  For author guidelines, visit http://pmworldjournal.net/authors/author-guidelines/. All works published in the PMWJ are archived in the PM World Library.

Call for Research Papers for PMSA 2016 Conference in Johannesburg

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

Invitation to academic and professional researchers to support Innovation in project management theme

15 June 2016 – Johannesburg, South Africa – Project Management South Africa (PMSA) will hold their 2016 biennial national conference under the theme of “Harnessing the Power of Innovation” at The Wanderers Club, Illovo, Johannesburg, Gauteng during 9-11 November 2016. PMSA is now inviting researchers to submit abstracts for scientific research papers for presentation at the conference. To access the conference website, click here.

160615-pmwj47-pmsa-IMAGEThe speed of change is increasing exponentially, often to the detriment of organisations who struggle to determine which change is applicable and how to manage it to their benefit. Many see “innovation” as the solution. The call is often for creativity and a shift in culture which will enable leaders and employees to optimise change. But how to achieve this is the question.

Project management often provides the ideal environment in which to harness innovation. It requires project managers’ skills sets to include the ability and know-how to encourage and develop creative thinking to achieve results within the parameters set by the project. It’s about developing the ability to marry the traditionally structured, output-driven project management approach with “out-of-the-box thinking. The PMSA 2016 Conference aims to aid project managers in developing their own innovative skills which they can apply to their teams, as well as to intrinsically innovative projects that they have to manage.

PMSA cordially invites researchers, practitioners and enthusiasts to submit high-quality, original abstracts for research papers. All abstracts that successfully pass the review process will be followed by a final research paper for presentation at the 2016 conference and publication in the official conference proceedings. Abstracts not longer than 500 words in English are due by email to [email protected] not later than 6 July 2016. Click to access the 2016 PMSA Conference, First Call for Research Papers or click here for full call for papers.

Project Management South Africa (PMSA) is a Section 21 (not-for-gain) professional association representing the interests of project, programme and portfolio management practitioners in South Africa. PMSA has a membership of over 1 500 project management practitioners at various career stages and has existed as an autonomous representative body for over 15 years.

Call for Papers on the Program Management Office

 

PM World Journal invites articles and papers about all aspects of PMOs for programs

14 June 2016 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Program/project management experts, practitioners and researchers around the world are invited to submit original works for publication in the PM World Journal related to the program management office.  Articles and papers are sought that describe experience, best practices, issues and solutions related to establishing and successfully operating a program-level PMO.

PMW-Journal-Cover 150x188The project management office (PMO) is one of the best known approaches for implementing mature project management processes on large projects. There are many articles, papers, books, conferences and communities focused on the PMO. But programs are different, normally larger than individual projects and often much more complex. The complexities of programs can include the planning and coordination of multiple projects (and project-level PMOs), multiple internal and external stakeholders, communication issues, enterprise financial and political aspects, operational factors, sustainability, return on investment and other considerations.

This call for papers on PMOs for programs is intended to expand the literature, identify new examples and successful experiences, and stimulate new research on this topic.

Subjects for original works might include:

  • Featured Papers – research results related to application of the PMO approach on programs
  • Advisory Articles – how to set up, launch or manage a program level PMO, or deal with the many challenges that entails
  • Personal Stories and Case Studies – examples of a program PMO
  • Commentaries – personal opinions on this issue; what do you think?
  • Second Editions – older works previously presented at conferences or previously published that address this topic

Questions or original works can be submitted to [email protected].

According to Managing Editor David Pells, “A program PMO deals with different challenges than a project-level PMO. I think it’s also quite different from an enterprise PMO, especially in large organizations such as government agencies. We’re looking for some experience and knowledge that might help program offices and management teams in those situations.”

“In some cases, a manager or leadership team might inherit a program where effective project management has not yet been implemented, either at the enterprise level or on lower-level projects,” Pells adds. “I think this is in fact a big challenge in government and large global organizations. How does one take the bull by the horns, create effective PM policies and processes while helping plan, implement and manage a program consisting of multiple projects. We would like to grow the resource base on this topic in the PM World Library.”

Authors are invited to submit an original article or paper for publication in the PM World Journal. For author guidelines, visit http://pmworldjournal.net/authors/author-guidelines/. All works published in the PMWJ are archived in the PM World Library.
