Lynn Crawford

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


For more than 50 years the so-called modern project management has been a continuously growing discipline. Initially developed for the management of major projects in special sectors, it is now part of most industries and organizations. In line with this development, the number and complexity of projects in organizations has increased substantially, enlarging the economic importance of projects. Today, managers not only need to know the basics of project management. Successful project management also requires knowledge of the complex interactions between projects and the permanent part of the organization and of the social processes within and between project teams. For project managers, it is essential to constantly update and enhance their project management skills and knowledge.
