Maude Brunet co-edits a new book on complex project organizing

April 4, 2023

Project management is increasingly being used to solve grand challenges that affect organizations and society. It is a particularly relevant tool for framing sustainable transitions. But have we tapped the full potential of project management yet? Do we really understand all of its ins and outs? These are some of the questions addressed in the Research Handbook on Complex Project Organizing.

Published in English last winter, this handbook has been co-edited by three academics, Maude Brunet, Dongping Cao and Graham M. Winch who is one of the world’s leading authorities in this field.

More than 60 authors from all over the world have contributed to this book which outlines all the research being conducted currently on the subject of complex project organizing.

The handbook is divided into four parts. Part I deals with the core concepts of complex project organizing. Part II showcases how these projects refer to the theory of organizations. Part III — edited by Maude Brunet — deals with the contemporary challenges of complex projects. Part IV offers reflections on innovation and new technologies.

After my involvement as associate editor in the International Journal of Project Management, this is another important sign of recognition for my work and for the legitimacy of my contribution on an international scale.”
