Reviews and Testimonials

Project management (PM) is a cross-disciplinary field that is important in public, private and non-profit organizations but it receives less attention in the literature than leadership, strategy or human resource management. There are only a handful of reputable peer reviewed international journals that serve PM practitioners and researchers - these PM journals are typically affiliated with recognized PM associations; IJITPM serves a valuable function by providing an independent voice from the PM associations for researchers to share their research.

– Dr. Kenneth David Strang, Doctorate, MBA, BS, BT, FLMI, CNA, PMP (certified by PMI, USA) and Chief Editor of International Journal of Risk and Contingency Management

For many years, practice has considered the management of information technology (IT) projects to be unique, that context makes a difference with respect to the methods, people, and outcomes that must be considered. Yet, the IT literature relegated the topic to the management field as if irrelevant to advancing IT study and practice. IJITPM provides researchers an outlet that recognizes the importance of contextual matters associated with IT project management. Practitioners can turn to IJITPM as a common source to discover advances in thought by academics who understand the abundant distinctions.

– Gary Klein, Cougar Professor of Information Systems, University of Colorado, USA

IJITM covers an increasingly important area for organisations. It is unique in its scope and coverage, offering insights into the application and theory of managing IT projects. It delivers an excellent resource of papers and discussion essential for developing, growing and enhancing the discipline.

– Prof Darren Dalcher, Director, National Centre for Project Management, Middlesex University, UK

I have been Area Editor of IJITPM from its first issue and it has been a remarkable experience. The articles published so far show that this is a truly international journal that publishes rigorous, interesting and relevant research. IJITPM promotes and disseminates a kind of knowledge that is important to technologists, managers and project researchers. Its wide appeal allows the integration of worldviews and thus contributes to a more rounded understanding of the issues, problems, opportunities and challenges that we often face while practicing or researching information technology projects. IJITPM is an important journal with a promising future.

– Associate Professor Walter Fernandez, Co-Director National Centre for Information Systems Research, Australian National University, Australia

The growing maturity of Information Technology Project Management leads to the need of a specific journal devoted to the discipline. Thus, the establishment of the International Journal of Information Technology Project Management (IJITPM) represents a significant milestone for this knowledge area. The journal is aimed to produce a strong and positive impact on both practitioners and academics alike and, as a result of this, and given the strong impact of Information Technologies, in the whole society.

– Dr. Ricardo Colomo-Palacios, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain

IJITPM is a high quality journal with in-depth articles about IT project management not found in any other journal. It is very concise but wide-based journal that brings the IT practitioner up to date on a very important area of project management and adds an important value to this area. I have found useful articles in every issue from the beginning, impressed of the variety in the subject matter and the depth at which most articles explore. IJITPM is, in my opinion, the premier journal in the area of managing IT projects and I would highly recommend it to anyone dealing with this area.

– Zohar Laslo, Ph.D., Professor of Industrial Engineering & Management, Dean, SCE - Shamoon College of Engineering, Israel

I believe that IJITPM encourages co-development of information systems and project management through active discussions and provides the leading forum for practitioners and researchers. I am honored to have been invited to participate in the editorial board of this journal and am happy to have accepted the invitation.

– Tomoko Saiki, Professor, TITECH, Tokyo, Japan
