Complexity and Interdisciplinarity in Project Management

Series Editor:

Modern project management needs more than tools for creating order and control. The traditional approach to project management works in stable and predictable environments. Yet, reality tells us that managing projects mostly means managing continual change of project constraints, social dynamics, uncertainty and increasing complexity. New fields need to be sourced to understand project management from a broader range of perspectives.

The purpose of this Series is to explore new, interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives on complexity in project management, with a particular focus on projects, programmes and portfolio, the vehicles that are fundamental for everything from the delivery of new products or services, to the development of new business processes and the transformation of the organization itself.

The titles in this Series narrate emerging approaches to project management research and practice from a variety of fields around arts, discourse theory and cultural studies. The aim is to extend our understanding, transfer and adoption of new research methodologies to encourage an interdisciplinary thinking and doing of project management in times of increasing complexity.
