Abstract

The course and the success of projects depend essentially on the people who
design project processes or pass judgment on their results. Conversely, the
requirements and parameters of projects also influence the experience and
behavior of the project’s participants. Project work and project management
are thus a form of applied psychology. This chapter provides an overview of this
book’s contents, explains the purpose of applied and organizational psychology
and the significance of project management in modern organizations, and
explores the role applied psychology plays in project management.
