25 Years of Projectification Research

New access to resource related to projects in society added to PMWL

13 October 2020 – Dallas, TX, USA – In case you missed it, new access to a useful previously published resource related to projects in society is available in the PM World Library (PMWL).  The resource titled “25 Years of Projectification Research” is a paper by Prof Arvi Kuura at the University of Tartu in Pärnu, Estonia that was published in the August 2020 edition of the PM World Journal.

According to the author’s introduction:  This paper marks the 25 years of projectification research. This research stream originated in 1995 from Midler’s seminal work in a special issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Management. During this time, projectification has been ongoing (and seemingly accelerating) process; it has deserved increasing interest, and the research field has significantly evolved. This paper scrutinizes the developments in projectification research, focusing on emerged and emerging trends and streams. Using a loosely structured combination of historical and content analysis, it intends to fix their initial source(s) and/or roots, the latest developments and the current ‘end state’. Also, it pays attention to so far less covered aspects, both positive and negative implications of projectification, as well as possible over-projectification.
