Abstract

To improve management and efficiency, many organizations nowadays employ multiple project management (MPM) practices. A common way to do so is having one project manager lead multiple concurrent projects, which we term - the management of a group of multiple projects (MGMP). Despite the high rate of utilization in the industries, MGMP research is still limited. In responding to the demand in this relevant research area, we examined the issues leading to effectiveness in MGMP from six leading high-tech organizations. We found the organizational-level and operational-level factors influencing the effectiveness in MGMP and the criteria for measuring the MGMP effectiveness. This finding was organized as a framework underlying the effectiveness in MGMP, providing important managerial implications and suggesting potential future research.
