This is Janice. Director of the PM Research Institute

She is Professor in Project Management at Athabasca University and Director of the Project Management Research Institute.

Janice is interested in many aspects of project management - perhaps all of them….recently she’s restricted herself to researching the value of project management (funded by PMI), organizational change, project management, governance, leadership, teambuilding, complexity theory in relation to organizations and the professionalization of knowledge workers. Ultimately her research is aimed at improving the practise of project management in organizations.

Janice spent 10 years as an Information Technology and Organizational Change project manager before she became a full time academic. In 2006, she was recognized as one of the 25 most influential women in project management by PMNetwork. In 2010 Janice was an honourable member of the Concept Symposium on Project Governance in Norway and the PMI Research Achievement Award winner.
