A systematic literature review on governance in project-based organizations: Conceptualization, underlying assumptions and research agenda
2015 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper presents the results of a systematic literature review on the topic of project governance in project-based organizations. Two specific contributions to the field have emerged from the analysis of the identified articles: (1) suggestion of a meta-definition that appear to encompass different definitions of the term, (2) identification of the theoretical limitations of the field, including the static underlying theories, neglect of the project work content, and the implicit ‘one-size-fits-all’ assumption. The paper concludes with the discussion of the future lines of inquiry that can further advance project governance field in the light of the results.
