Abstract

Project manager assignment is an important decision management has to make since a project manager is known as one of the key project success factors. Despite the importance of the decision, research on project manager assignment is very limited. The objective of this study is to empirically investigate the project manager assignment. In particular, it examines the impact of the approaches used in the assignment on the project management effectiveness of an organization. The results of this study reveal the ways management should assign projects to their project managers such that the assignments enhance the resource productivity, organization learning, project success (time, cost, customer satisfaction, and business success), and personal satisfaction (career advancement, reward for performance, and personal learning).
