Call For Papers
1st International Workshop on Project and Knowledge Management Trends (PKMT 2011)
Torre Canne (BR), Italy, June 20, 2011
Co-located with the 12th International Conference on Product Focused Software Development and Process Improvement (PROFES 2011)
Aim and Scope
PKMT 2011 provides an opportunity to researchers and practitioners to exchange knowledge on new models, methods and techniques supporting project management in the context of organization of organizations.
Project achievement costs represent a significant fraction of Gross National Products of the developed and developing countries.To keep under control project schedule, cost and quality, consolidated management methodologies and techniques are today widely used, especially in the context of single organizations and medium scale projects.
Organizations are very complex systems that are able not only to cooperate in order to develop projects but, at the same time, to transfer knowledge about:
(i) application domains,
(ii) ways of working,
(iii) best practices, and how skills and knowledge have to be transferred or made available in the context of an open framework network.
In order to carry out complex, large scale projects, more and more cooperation among enterprises is pursued in various forms such as alliance, co-opetition, networks and virtual communities. In this rapidly changing economic scenario, where organizations operate under the pressure of new competitive challenges,the discipline of Project Management needs further research contributions.
Relationships between different management approaches, such as Project Management, Service Science and Viable System Approach should also be investigated.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Project Risks
• Contract and Service Level Agreements
• Project and Knowledge Management
• Tools for project management
• Project management case studies
• Knowledge engineering
• Cooperating in project management
• Best practice in project management
• Distributed Software Engineering Projects
• Engineering, Procurement and Construction
• Soft Skills
• Portfolio and Program Management
• Virtual Project Office
• Project Management, Service Science and Viable System Approach
Best practices are welcome, with the related case studies from both industry and research institutions.
