De Gruyter Handbook of Responsible Project Management

Beverly L. Pasian (Editor), Nigel Leroy Williams (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The narrative about the project management profession is dominated by discussions of “success” and “failure” along with the need to improve the competence of project managers. As a result, the community is engaged in a fruitless search for a combination of tools, techniques and practices that will result in desired outcomes for funders. While the profession has made recent attempts to incorporate environmental and social responsibility, these areas are still framed within the existing discourses of project delivery. The De Gruyter Handbook of Responsible Project Management seeks to rethink project management by integrating contributions from the emerging responsible Management domain. This handbook will explore the nature and extent of project professionals’ responsibility at different levels–individual, team, organizational and societal–along with the implications for education, research and practice. The De Gruyter Handbook of Responsible Project Management offers cutting-edge insights into the fi eld of project management. It is an essential reference for scholars and practitioners.
