IPMA International Project Management Association

“Project Leadership and Society”- 9th IPMA Research Conference, 12-13 June 2021 ONLINE

Projects are changing society. COVID-19 is destroying numerous of our accustomed society systems and operations while definitely bringing numerous our never experienced projects. Projects are connecting today to tomorrow, and project leadership is never taken as so important the role in creating valuable projects for moving our society forward in the VUCA era. Research on Project Leadership and Society studies the interaction between projects, project leadership, project management on the one hand, and economic, social, political, and organizational processes, on the other. All participants of the IPMA RC 2021 are expected to yield findings that have implications for policy or practice. We are especially interested in leadership in a project society that includes all types of projects, programs, project portfolios, project-oriented organizations, project networks, project industries. Interesting topics to study projects from a broader perspective include; vertical leadership, shared leadership, change, projectification, resilience, sustainable development, responsibility, stakeholder engagement, novel perceptions on value creation, and project success. The IPMA RC 2021 welcomes work from scholars worldwide.

About IPMA Research Conference
The IPMA Research Conference was founded in 2013, and as a Think Tank, it aims to bring researchers, experts, scholars and practitioners in project management together who share a common passion for their discipline. During the conference, they discuss and exchange research ideas and achievements on the topic of projects and its management. The distinctive feature of this small in size conference is the intense dialogue between practitioners and academics, which can neither be found at scientific or professional conferences. The annual international conference was held in Germany, China, South Africa, Iceland and South Korea since its beginning and aims to bring together experts from all countries worldwide to increase the mutual understanding of the global challenges of project managers in diverse environments and industries. The special spirit of the IPMA Research Conferences can be particularly felt in the World Café sessions where the participants can gain new insight perspectives for today´s challenges in project management.
