Handbook of Research on Effective Project Management through the Integration of Knowledge and Innovation

Book Description

The field of project management experiences conceptual, technological, and decision issues when projects are created, implemented, and executed without the needed strategic connection. It is important to improve the connection between knowledge management and project management practices. The Handbook of Research on Effective Project Management through the Integration of Knowledge and Innovation bridges the gap between knowledge management and project management practices by providing both classical and modern views on their relationship. Discussing principles, practices, methods, and real case studies, this book describes the importance of aligning projects with a knowledge-based strategic plan to the benefit of practitioners, professionals, scholars, and researchers in the fields of management and information science.
