MetadataShow full item record
Research within project management (PM) and project portfolio management (PPM) continues to evolve. In looking for suitable theoretical bases to apply to PM and PPM research, our panel members turn to the strategic management domain. This session will explore and debate the application of the resource based view (RBV), dynamic capabilities (DC) and absorptive capacity (AC) concepts to PM and PPM research. The goals of this educational and interactive session are to promote the sharing of experiences, encourage critical analysis, and heighten awareness about current theoretical approaches to research in PM and PPM. The session is conducted by a panel of researchers who have contributed to the field of project management through conceptual and empirical papers based on the RBV, DC and/or AC perspectives.
