Evidence-based practices for human resources project management are the focus of a new publication co-edited by François Chiocchio, Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management at University of Ottawa's Telfer School of Management.
The book discusses the foundational elements of all successful HR projects, and pushes the envelope in its consideration of timely global, technical, and strategic issues. With contributions from leaders in theory and practice, it presents case studies and empirical lessons, offering a foundation that can be used to guide large-scale HR projects in any professional context. Each chapter summarizes the best available evidence on how to proceed through project stages and manage strategy, providing an opportunity to gain insights on key topics in human resource management. Advancing Human Resource Project Management is edited by Richard Klimoski, Beverly Dugan, Carla Messikomer, and François Chiocchio.
Professor Chiocchio received his PhD in psychology from Université de Montréal in 2002. His research focuses on projects, teamwork, and collaboration in various organizational environments, including health care organizations in Canada and Africa.
