Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Project Management and Productivity Assessment (IJPMPA) is to develop, promote and disseminate knowledge in the areas of productivity, efficiency, and project management. The measurement of organizational productivity, performance, and efficiency is an essential part of change and contributes to general welfare of organizations and, to a larger extent, societies. By measuring productivity and efficiency, it is possible to evaluate the performance of an organization and its management by comparing it with benchmarks of international best practices. Thus, from a societal point of view, project and productivity management is of high importance and value. The international dimension of the journal is emphasized to overcome cultural and national barriers and meet the needs of accelerating technology and changes in the global economy. Novel and fundamental theories, algorithms, technologies, and applications support this mission.
