Description and Topics of Interest:

IT project management researchers and practitioners face significant challenges that cover a range of topics across many Information Systems areas including virtual project management, agile project management, risk management and assurance, knowledge networks, project management methodologies, distributed project management, project leadership, sponsorship, project quality metrics, project management standards, best practices in project management, and project success. Outsourcing topics are also a related concern for Information Systems projects. The overall goal of the IT Project Management and Outsourcing Track is to feature quality research papers and one or more panels that focus on issues that cut across many traditional IT Project Management and Outsourcing areas. The track solicits high-quality conceptual and empirical contributions that attempt to advance theory and application of project management or outsourcing using any research approach or philosophical perspective (e.g., action research, experiment, grounded theory, design science, case studies, survey research, theory development, prototyping, methodology development, PM tool development). These areas include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
