The book, published by the official University of Granada editorial, is one of the most important activities of the Chair. It analyses the phenomenon of the projectification of society from different perspectives: economic, social, human, business, organisational and European.


The Chair has been able to work with a panel of international experts who have generously offered to collaborate in the book. This is the content and the amazing roster of collaborators:

While going through these chapters, the reader will be able to appreciate the wide range of literary styles employed by the authors, which have been respected in the editorial process. This has led to a publication made up of a whole host of styles, content and experiences; an extremely valuable document which creates a complete map of project management that includes its wealth of positive features and complexities.

The order of the chapters in no way reflects any form of hierarchy or relative importance. One of the lessons that has been learned during the creation of this publication is that project management and the projectification of society require a multidisciplinary approach. The convergence of economic, business, political, social, and of course, individual components are clear. Projectification is a very complex yet fascinating issue, and this publication has approached it as such.

The result has been a high quality publication that sets the basis for any debate related to projectification and how it should be managed in the next years in order to enhance the positive effects and reduce the negative ones.

An aditional effort has been made and the publication is presented in English and Spanish, thus reaching the widest possible audience.

We would like to thank all those who have made this publication possible, especially the University of Granada and the European Commission that has provided resources through the ERASMUS + Programme (Jean Monnet Actions).
