PROGRAMME COORDINATOR & FACULTY

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

The seminar has two aims:

1. To provide a forum for doctoral students in project management from Europe and around the world, where they can share experiences in studying project management, exchanging information on:

  • research and theoretical paradigms appropriate for project management
  • research methodologies appropriate for research in project management
  • literature on project management to inform their studies

2. To explore with doctoral students new directions for research in the field of project .management.

This year the theme of the annual EDEN Doctoral Seminar will be Difficult Projects. There will be three sub-themes: Developing Countries, Difficult Terrain and Difficult Stakeholders. The seminar will run over three days from Monday 25th August to Wednesday 27th August 2013. On Thursday and Friday we will run a Mentoring Workshop, when students can either defend their research proposal or practice their thesis defence.

There are many challenging projects, which are either challenging because of the social or political context they take place in, or because of the terrain, or because of the need to deal with stakeholders. So there are three sub-themes

Developing Countries: developing countries lack the infrastructure, the political and governance maturity and support fro the local population found in developed countries. These can all create challenges for projects

Difficult Terrain: projects can take place at the bottom of the ocean, at the tops of mountains, in the Amazonian rain forest or in outer space. All of these can create extra challenges.

Difficult Stakeholders: Stakeholders are a continuing challenge. Know your stakeholders and you will know bliss. Know your stakeholders and you will know hell..

As in previous years doctoral students will be given an opportunity to share their own research topics. The mentoring workshop on Thursday and Friday will be reserved for students from SKEMA who wish to defend their research proposal or practice their thesis defence. All attendees can share their research ideas and receive feedback on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.

At SKEMA Business School we have run a research seminar in project management in August every year since 2001, so this will be the 14th in a continuous series. This will be the 7th time we have aligned this successful series with EIASM and the EDEN initiative.

As in previous years doctoral students will be given an opportunity to share their own research topics, and receive feedback on them.
