Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 20th, April 2021

External Deadline: Sunday 25th, April 2021


We invite proposals from scholars both within and outside the field of project management, and/or its sub-fields, whose themes and perspectives have direct application to some aspect of the project management body of knowledge or its practice.

While this is an open call for research in the field of project management, special consideration will be given to proposals that address the following topics:

  • * How diversity impacts project teams’ performance
  • * Impact of gender equality/inequality (e.g. in compensations) on organizational performance and employee engagement
  • * How organizations and talent management transform by 2030
  • * Future industry organizational trends with a particular interest in the use of hyper-agility in industry
  • * The transformation of the user’s role in the workplace and the use of Citizen Development

Research proposals submitted for consideration must:

  • * Address the extent to which the outcomes of the project are “practitioner-ready.” The research needs to demonstrate the direct contribution to practice, not simply a discussion of implications.
  • * Have a theoretical framework that must be explicitly identified in the proposal.
