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 Systems Approach should also be investigated. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
