Exploring the value creation in the project Aarhus 2017

Project description: Value creation in public and cultural projects differs from creation of value in business projects, which makes it interesting to study Aarhus 2017. Therefore, the project will study the creation of public value through researching project practices mainly practices related to governing and managing the project and a number of subprojects.

The project will focus on practices and the practitioners such as the project decision makers in Aarhus 2017, which means both project managers as well as politicians. The scope is not limited to them, as the research takes a collaborative approach engaging with a variety of groups and individuals involved in or influenced by Aarhus 2017, in interviews and one workshop for discussing practice and exchanging knowledge.
