Exploring American University Project Management
American university stakeholders criticize one another's academic effectiveness, yet rarely partner for organizational improvement. As an experienced IT professional engaged in doctoral studies, Arden Lockwood observed ineffective methods at an American university as both an employee and a student. Coupled with her MBA and Project Management Professional (PMP) certification, Arden theorized that the wise application of project management concepts could benefit higher education organizations. Exploring data associated with 162 institutions, this research represents one of the broadest inquiries regarding project management across one nation's universities. Faculty, administrators, students, and policy makers will each gain important foundations as they learn to explore together the potential benefits of project management to their university campuses.
