Abstract

Because project managers influence the success of projects, assigning the right project manager to a project is a crucial management decision. Despite the importance of the decision, research on project manager assignment is very limited. The objective of this study is to empirically examine the impact of the approaches used in project manager assignment on project management effectiveness, especially in a multiple project management setting. The research results confirm the significance of project manager assignment and reveal assignment approaches that enhance effectiveness in terms of resource productivity, organization learning, project success, and personal satisfaction.
