Traditionally, project management has been neglected by business schools and by default it has become the preserve of more specialised professional faculties such as engineering and architecture. By taking a broader organisational perspective and by covering a wider range of industries and professions, IJPOM will appeal to a wider readership which includes not only those with an interest in mainstream management topics but also practitioners engaged in an unlimited variety of projects.

  • Pre-project activities
  • Project proposals/initial analysis, conception/design, management models
  • Post-deployment review/documentation
  • Engineering, production, service, construction projects
  • Public sector programmes/campaigns, public/private sector partnerships
  • Consultancy projects, public relations campaigns
  • Mergers/acquisitions, outsourcing, alliances
  • Particular events, humanitarian aid programmes, disasters projects
  • Virtual projects, web-based PM, open-ended projects
  • Communication/collaboration, negotiation skills, risk assessment/management
  • Current/emerging standards, facilities/equipment support, quality assurance/testing
  • Goals/objectives setting, budgeting, time/cost estimating
  • HRM challenges, staffing, organisation change projects
  • Opportunity management, marketing/branding strategies, measurement/metrics

More on this journal...

The aim of IJPOM is to attract contributions, and especially case studies, from a wide spectrum of academics and practitioners. As managers and business schools are increasingly placing increasing emphasis on strategy implementation issues, a project management approach will undoubtedly become more compelling and thus more acceptable in a wide range of fields.


IJPOMís readership will come from professionals and managers dealing with project management on a daily basis. It also includes academics and researchers from various fields (business administration, economics and social sciences) concerned with the topic as well as policy makers and project planners in the field of business, commerce and industry.


IJPOM publishes original, theoretical, conceptual and empirical papers on a wide range of issues about project management. It also includes best practice examples as well as technical reports on the latest project management tools.
