This engaging Research Handbook presents a fresh look at how to improve project performance for the project sponsor, client and end user using a number of empirical research studies. Focusing on project performance concepts and methods, the Handbook provides a novel and fresh look at successful project completions, achieving project objectives, on-time or ahead of time project completion or delivering within budget.

With contributions from expert scholars, each chapter highlights a new wave of research and examines how to plan and manage a project as well as handling unexpected changes alongside project risks, unknowns or uncertainties. Key factors enhancing project success are highlighted such as the critical role of the project manager and their effective leadership, the importance of knowledge sharing, effective communication and lessons learnt from past projects. Furthermore, the Handbook reviews new and emerging trends that can have a major impact on project performance.

Combining new insights with original research, the Research Handbook on Project Performance will be an invigorating read for research scholars and graduate students studying project management as well as professional managers engaged in project management.
Critical Acclaim
‘For project managers, identifying, selecting and implementing “best” project management practices that can have a major impact on project performance are not easy tasks to conduct. One can ask what is the role of project managers to do so? How can project managers implement and measure project management success? With the collaboration of well-known academics, this book sheds light on the concepts and dimensions on project success and project performance. A must-read to understand the conditions to achieve project success and improve project performance.’
– Nathalie Drouin, Université du Québec à Montréal (ESG UQAM), Canada

‘A book for every project academic – I can thoroughly recommend it to both researchers and practitioners. It ranges through the entire breadth and lifecycle of a project, from debates about “project success” to project environment issues as diverse as cross-cultural Integration and Industry 4.0, with a practical critical view. It has a considerable international range of authors, including the well-known Ika/Pinto pairing bringing a fresh look to conditions for project success.’
– Terry Williams, University of Hull, UK
