As a field of knowledge and practice, project management is an increasingly important perspective on operations management in contemporary society. Apart from implying new forms of leadership and control where single projects and multi-project settings are concerned, the “projectification” of society also imply new practices and perspectives on business management in general. In this course, we will study modern project management from three main perspectives. First, project management is considered as an operations form, thereby combining project management and operations management. Second, we will look into special managerial problems of project-based operations. Third, we will discuss the current knowledge development in the field of project management and have a closer look at some current research perspectives.
