Research Initiatives

There has been a lot of criticism of the existing triple constraints (on time, scope and budget) project paradigm. It is time to build a research agenda to address the foundational and practical problems of project management.

The PRI community builds a research agenda on a number of initiatives identified by the community, including existing and driving new research topics,  as the discussion unfolds.
