July 16, 2010 Congratulations Dr. Lechler
2010 Project Management Journal®
Paper of the Year Award
The 2010 Project Management Journal (PMJ®) Paper of the Year Award is presented to Terence J. Cooke-Davies, PhD, Lynn H. Crawford, DBA, MTCP, and Thomas G. Lechler, PhD, for their article Project Management Systems: Moving Project Management From an Operational to a Strategic Discipline published in the March 2009 issue of PMJ.
Their article explores how the underlying drivers of an organization’s strategy might influence not only the nature of the projects that it undertakes, but also the appropriateness of the arrangements that it makes to manage those projects. “This paper presents an analysis of four organizations that have made significant investments in project management over the past five years. The analysis supports the hypothesis that the value an organization derives from project management is influenced by the degree of “fit” between strategic drivers of value and the configuration of the project management system.”
