Research Methods in Project Management

Date: 01/05/2015

By: Sue White

‘This book is a tour de force on research designs, methods and practices. It covers a wide range of foundational aspects, general and specific research approaches, mixed methods strategies, unique environment settings and state-of-the-art tools, such as social media. All presented by renowned researchers. Clearly a must have for every project management researcher.’
Reinhard Wagner, IPMA Vice President for Research

‘The field of project management has come a long way in the last quarter of a century in improving the quality of its research and the rigour of the research methodologies on which it is based. However, it stands accused of being very narrow now. Project management research is based on rigorous methodologies, but a very narrow range of methodologies are used. Having now built a firm base, project management research now needs to move out into new areas to broaden the topics that can be investigated and the ways they can be investigated. In that we can find new insights into the field. This book will make an extremely valuable contribution into opening up the research horizons of project management. I would also like to use chapters as readings on my research management courses.’
Rodney Turner, Professor of Project Management, Kingston Business School, UK

In Designs, Methods and Practices for Research of Project Management, Beverly Pasian has brought together original chapters from a veritable who's who of project management research including authors such as Harvey Maylor, Christophe Bredillet, Derek Walker, Miles Shepherd, Janice Thomas, Naomi Brookes and Darren Dalcher. The collection looks at research strategy, management, methodology, techniques as well as emerging topics such as social network analysis. The 38 chapters offer an international perspective with examples from a wide range of project management applications; engineering, construction, mega-projects, high-risk environments and social transformation.
