Abstract

Links the area of project management with critical management perspectives. Recent debates have suggested that the problems inherent in project management in practice (cost overruns, delays etc.) reside in the prescriptive, functionalist and quantitative tradition inherited by project management from the narrow perspective of operations management. This chapter examines these issues focusing on Information Systems project management.
