Project Dynamics: virtuous, Vicious and BI-cycles

About Kim van Oorschot:

Dr. Kim van Oorschot is Professor of Project Management in the Department of Leadership and Organizational Behaviour at the BI Norwegian Business School. Her current research focuses on decision making, trade-offs, and tipping points in dynamically complex settings, like new product development (NPD) projects. Her research projects are aimed at discovering so-called ‘decision traps': decisions that seem to be good on the short term, but have counterproductive effects on the long term. For this purpose, she develops system dynamics models based on actual project data. She also teaches project management and system dynamics to executive, master, and bachelor students. She has published in such journals as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Production and Operations Management, Journal of Product Innovation Management, Project Management Journal, Journal of the Operational Research Society, and International Journal of Operations and Production Management.
