    OtherThe theme,

    Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: In Search of Theory and Evidence reflects three key issues facing the field of project management research and education:

    How research and education can “stand on the shoulders of giants” – enabling us to see farther and with greater insight because of the knowledge platform being built.
    The role of theory and whether the field has moved on from Koskela and Howell’s (2002) provocation, that there is no underlying theory of project management.
    The opportunity of evidence- based project management, which was highlighted at the 2012 Research and Education Conference in Professor Denise Rousseau’s (2012) keynote address.
