The track was chaired by Bjarne Rerup Schlichter, Per Svejvig and Jonas Kroustrup.  Kasper Ostrowski and Bjarne Rerup Schlichter had the pleasure to chair the actual session at the conference.

Our track, which attracted some interesting papers, had the following description:
“Management of projects is of considerable economic importance and there has been a dramatic growth in project work across different sectors, industries and countries. Project management is no longer a sub-discipline of engineering and other rather technical disciplines, but is also used for strategy implementation, continuous improvement, business transformation, new product development and much more. All these aspects include IT in a steady increasing share. The aim of this track is to motivate researchers to address this changing environment of IT projects and to connect with broader currents of social science, design science and more traditional paths in relevant fields. We also welcome other type of papers in the broader domain of project management of information technology projects. The track will feature research papers that focus on problems that cut across traditional IS/T Project Management areas, including, but not limited to, the following topics: project success,  virtual project management,  agile project management,  knowledge networks in projects,  project management methodologies,  distributed project management,  project leadership,  project quality metrics,  project management standards, best practices in project management, and  pedagogical  and didactic issues”.

The conference website, including all papers, can be visited at www.mcis2014.it/index.html.

I will use this opportunity to thank my co-chairs and the reviewers for their good and timely work.
