Perspectives in Project Management

A Selection of Masters Degree Research Projects

Editor(s): Raufdeen Rameezdeen, Anthony Wood

Book Description

All the contributions to this volume are condensed versions of research projects undertaken by students in the final year of the online Master of Project Management degree delivered by the University of South Australia in conjunction with Open Universities Australia.

Contributors to this book consist primarily of graduated Masters’ students, supported by supervising academics and relevant industry specialists and practitioners. As a result, the authors present current research interests across the breadth of Australia – with many of the perspectives demonstrating relevance to practice globally.

The research perspectives presented here focus on four key themes of project management theory and practice: people and organisations; methodologies and practice domains; issues in application; and continuous improvement and benchmarking. Collectively, this work will be of particular interest to project management academics and researchers, post-graduate students, and the broader project management community.
