About the Project
Preferably, an interpretive case study approach will be employed which will allow the researcher to study project management in a natural setting and generate theories from practice. Through the use of qualitative research methods the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the decision making process in project management and the complexities involved. This study will seek to analyse the linkages between the different actors involved in a project and the decision making process relevant to the successful completion of a project. This will enable the researcher to explore the impact that behavioural decision making has on the completion of projects at an organisational level and to make recommendations on how to maximise success of project management.
