Call for Chapters
Proposals Submission Deadline: January 5, 2019
Full Chapters Due: March 15, 2019
Submission Date: March 15, 2019
The book will explore the relationship between project management
principles and methods under the phenomena of emerging technologies
introduction. From theoretical and practical points of view, specially
observing the context of projects that proposes innovations for firms
and markets, this book will encompass academic and scientific
propositions, reviews for conceptual bases, application of theories in
new market solutions and cases of successful insertion of disruptive
technologies and business models, regarded as management technologies,
in new businesses propositions and new competitive market offers and
This relationship is critical nowadays, as the overall demand for
innovation is becoming more critical for competitiveness and emerging
technologies - supported by themes like big data, analytics, internet of
things, cognitive computing, new business models (such as marketplaces,
scarcity and repetitive demand models), etc. – became real alternatives
for the market, as for example, encompassing Industry 4.0 choices,
offering new perspectives for modern project management application.
The interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches are the
scientific guideline for this project, as all scientific, academic and
managerial fields advance in turbulent directions. This way, a book like
this one can contribute for both a theoretical leverage and as an
orientation on how to methodologically learn from study cases ("best
practices", case studies, and so forth).
One important aspect to be addressed, is the information and knowledge
management theories, resources and practical applications for project
management, which evolved expressively, since the launching of the
Handbook of research on effective project management through integration
of knowledge and innovation, in 2015 by IGI Global publishers. Now, all
the modern trends on technology and business alternatives, from
supported theory and assessed cases bring new comprehension and horizons
for project management context.
This book will be structured in two major sections:
Section I - Theoretical background: an interdisciplinary approach for
project management in modern times
This section will evaluate the theoretical basis for project management,
under offer and emergence of new technologies, trends in information and
knowledge management research and its perspectives of relationship as
Chapters accepted for this section will discuss theoretical issues,
background formation, analytical modelling for PM + IM + KM to be
applied in real situations, etc. to promote a documentation, review or
predictions around the scientific field evolution, considering the new
Section II - Case studies of new trends on project management and new
This section would discuss real cases, proposals, implementations and
competitive scenario analysis involving products, processes, industry
cases, professional formation, marketing and strategy relationships, etc.
Here, for example, we have the arena to discuss big data and analytics
applied to marketing decisions and research, introduction of Industry
4.0 in sector and business operations design, application of IoT for
healthcare, logistics, entertainment and services implementations, cases
of cognitive computing, among several others. Along with the theoretical
review in the first section, readers will have a supportive base of
conceptual base for better comprehension and learning from these cases.
• Promote and advance a study about applied Project Management,
reviewing it from new technologies perspectives.
• Level the comprehension on new technologies to be applied for project
• Study and advance the association of information and knowledge
contribution for project management.
• Discuss with more depth cases on how the emergent technologies are
being planned, thought, applied and produced to offer a new project
management perspective, from the rationale, formulation to effective
• Exercise methodological approach for project management research.
• Contribute with other areas such as information technology, business
management (Financial, Logistics, Human Resources, Technology, etc.),
innovation management, startups processes, review for project management
basic theoretical background.
Project management professionals related to PM practices in all levels
and sectors. Practitioners and scholars of innovation management;
Practitioners and scholars of information and knowledge management,
mainly those from fields of Information Science; Marketing and Strategy
professionals and scholars; Professionals and scholars of managerial
sciences areas, such as Administration and other professionals in areas
that have perspective to be involved in project management.
The book will be written and composed observing the perspectives for
methodological approaches in interdisciplinary studies about innovation
associated to technological trends and businesses management. This
proposition ensures also a perspective for the results, the final text
of the book, to be applied in both theoretical and practical exercises
Aiming to focus on new trends for project management, mainly from
emergent technologies and new business models, under interdisciplinary
and multidisciplinary scientific paradigm, there are some topic
guidelines which we consider appropriate, not limiting, as exposed in
Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:
1. Approaching new technologies for general application.
2. Approaching new technologies for project management applications.
3. Project management results from new technologies.
4. Project management and Industry 4.0 alternatives and implementations.
5. Information and knowledge management
6. Project management principles, theories and methods.
7. Innovation management.
8. Theoretical approaches for information management.
9. Case studies for innovation processes and projects.
10. Research methodologies for project management.
11. Information technology for project management.
12. Information technology study cases.
13. Innovation trends for project management practices.
14. Relating project management to business administration – such as
marketing, strategy and innovation.
