Governance und Governmentality: Das Yin und Yang der Steuerung in projektbasiertenOrganisationen

Zeitschrift für Führung und Organisation, 87(5), s. 309- 313.

Governance ist zu einem beliebten Thema in projektbasierten Organisationen geworden. Als eigenständiges Strukturkonzept konzeptualisiert es jedoch die Lenkung von Organisationen nur unzureichend, weil eine ausgleichende menschliche Dimension benötigt wird, damit der Wert dieses Konzepts erzielt werden kann.

The project-oriented organization and its contribution to innovation

International Journal of Project Management, 36(1), s. 147- 160. Doi: 10.1016/j.ijproman.2017.07.009

This paper presents a new conceptualization of the project-oriented organization. The project-oriented organization is conceptualized as an entrepreneurial, future- and stakeholder-oriented innovating organization, which uses projects as temporary, task-focused organizations, to define, develop, and implement its strategies, to transform its structure, culture and behavior, and to define and develop new products, services, and business models. The concept of the project-oriented organization consists of the three segments (1) values, (2) structures, and (3) people. For each segment three important areas are described, which characterize a project-oriented organization. The model is theoretically based on a wide spectrum of management disciplines: (1) The orientations in the value segment have been developed in entrepreneurship, strategic management and technology and innovation management; (2) The foundations for the design of the socio-technical artefacts in the structure segment of derived from organizational design, planning and controlling, and ICT systems theory; (3) The foundations for the elements of the human side come from organizational behavior, human resource management, and knowledge management theories. Our model shows a clear linkage to these theories, references key articles, and gives special consideration to empirical studies in the realm of projects, programs, project portfolios, and project-based or project-oriented organizations. Thus, our assumption that the elements of our model are supposed to increase project success, innovation success, and business success is based on empirical evidence.

The role of project portfolio management in fostering both deliberate and emergent strategy

International Journal of Project Management, 35(4), s. 557- 570. Doi: 10.1016/j.ijproman.2017.02.011 - Fulltekst i vitenarkiv

Formal strategy processes have been shown to be insufficient in shaping strategy, particularly in turbulent environments. Emerging strategies that constitute independently from deliberate top-down strategy processes are important for organizational adaptability. This study explores strategic control mechanisms at the project portfolio level and their influence on emergent and deliberate strategies. Based on a sample of 182 firms, we show that both deliberate and emerging strategies positively influence project portfolio success, complementing each other. In turbulent environments, the relevance of deliberate strategy implementation decreases. Strategic control activities not only foster the implementation of intended strategies, but also disclose strategic opportunities by unveiling emerging patterns. Furthermore, we find that deliberate strategy implementation and emerging strategy recognition mediate the performance impact of strategic control. Our findings suggest that strategic control at the project portfolio level has an important role to play in the purposeful management of emergent strategies.
