2nd Presentation: The Spirit of Project Management
An introduction to a new book authored by Dr Judi Neal, director of the Center for Faith and Spirit at Work at University of Arkansas, and Alan Harpham published by Gower in a series edited by Prof Darren Dalcher and one of the books in the ‘advances in PM series’.
Projects have always been essentially human endeavours. Large modern projects are generally highly complex, fraught with technical difficulties and supported by diverse, often apparently conflicted stakeholders. The spirituality that originally defined some of the great construction projects of the classical era surely has a role in project management today. The Spirit of Project Management explains the context for spirituality in projects and explores how it can be used to create a larger sense of purpose and achievement; to help encourage an esprit de corps amongst all those involved; to act as a touchstone for ethical and sustainable decision-making.
o Presenter – Alan Harpham – co-author of this book, member of selection committee for Faith and Spirit at Work Awards, previous director of The Center for Spirit at Work (University of Newhaven), Chair of Workplace Matters, an ecumenical Christian organisation in UK providing chaplains to workplaces (60+ volunteer chaplains), chair of Cranfield University’s Science and Engineering Research Ethics Committee, Member of the Cranfield University Research Ethics Committee, Chair of SPD Ethics C’ee (a medical research company), founding chair of MODEM UK (charity organisation encouraging dialogue between those interested in Leadership, Organisation and Management and those interested in Theology, Spirituality and Ministry), Member of the Christian Association of Business Execs (CABE), and many others.
