The track solicits high-quality conceptual and empirical contributions that attempt to advance theory and application of project management using any research approach or philosophical perspective (e.g., action research, experiment, grounded theory, design science, case studies, survey research, theory development, prototyping, methodology development, PM tool development). Special consideration will be given to papers and panel proposals that align well with the specific ECIS 2013 conference theme of “Beyond Borders” with PM topics in the domain of Health Informatics, Engineering Informatics, Educational Informatics and so on. The topic of IT Project Management is a central topic in the Information Systems discipline and relevant for businesses and non-profits in all IT-related fields and allied disciplines that depend on IT. IT projects today and in the future will span all types of boundaries – disciplines (e.g., health IT; Engineering informatics, Education and IT), geography, and culture (transnational virtual teams). Therefore this track fits particularly well into the specific ECIS 2013 theme of “Beyond Borders” in that transnational, multicultural and multidisciplinary teams are central to IT projects of today.
The track’s overall goal is to feature quality research papers and one or more panels that focus on problems that cut across many traditional IT Project Management areas.
