Project Management Journal®
The Project Management Journal’s mission is to shape world thinking
on the need for and impact of managing projects by publishing
cutting-edge research to advance theory and evidence-based practice.
Projects represent a growing proportion of human activity in large, small,
private, or public organizations. Projects are used to execute and sustain
today’s organizational activities. They play a fundamental role as the engine of
tomorrow’s innovation, value creation, and strategic change. However, projects too often fail to deliver on their promise.
PMJ addresses these multiple challenges and opportunities by encouraging the development and application of novel theories, concepts, frameworks, research methods, and designs. PMJ embraces contributions both
from within and beyond project management to augment and transform
theory and practice.
The Journal welcomes articles on projects, programs, project portfolios;
megaprojects; project-based organizations, project networks, project busi-
ness, and the projectification of society.
It welcomes the following topics, but not limited to: governance; strategy;
innovation and entrepreneurship; organizational change, learning, capabilities, routines, information systems and technology; complexity and uncertainty; ethics; leadership; teams; and stakeholder management in a wide
range of contexts.
