The Project Organising track provides an international platform to share and debate topical issues in the management of projects as temporary organisations and their context in organisations or inter-organisational networks. This includes the management of single projects, mega projects, programs, and project portfolios, as well as project-oriented organisations, which deliver projects to external or internal customers, and project networks or multi-enterprise meta-organisations created to deliver projects. We invite conceptual as well as empirical papers based on quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods. In our track, we run competitive sessions as well as development sessions, to help authors further develop their work.

ST10_01 Multi-level Perspective on Major and Megaprojects
Major projects are often complex endeavors, having many different structural arrangements and linkages with organizations and their wider institutional environments. Even though research in project management has addressed the embeddedness of projects within their context, we need to understand the specificities of major and megaprojects’ institutional and organizational contexts, how actors collaborate, coordinate and innovate in these temporary yet long-lasting, transformative and evolutive environments. This proposal raises the importance to understand the multi-levelness of major projects; the interfaces between projects, organisations and institutional levels; the governance issues and the coordination of the people involved across these levels.
UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG): Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities
Our society is faced with a number of unprecedented challenges (see UN Sustainable development Goals), that require a change in governments’, organisations’ and individuals’ ways of doing things. Given that more than one third of all human activities is based on projects, the mutual impacts of projects on economy and society are undeniable. The track aims to explore how projects and its management tackle these challenges at all levels (individual, teams, local community, organisation, industry, societies, and supra-national institutions).
