In today’s turbulent and unpredictable business landscape, if organizations want to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage, they must prioritize performance and innovation. The business environment has changed radically in recent years, and this change will certainly continue.
Nowadays, the importance of projects is overwhelming, and their importance will grow in the future. In this context, projects emerge as a way for organizations to implement their strategic objectives in order to respond to a need, opportunity, or threat in an efficient way. Furthermore, organizations alone do not always hold the necessary resources to enhance performance. Therefore, organizations often engage in collaborative projects, where they interact with business partners, customers, universities, and scientific and public institutions, and through the exchange of ideas, resources, and technologies facilitate the achievement of individual and collective goals. Indeed, certain authors and researchers argue that, among many other factors, the ability of an organization to develop projects is central to an organization’s success.
It must be stated that not all organizations have production; however, all organizations have projects. The risk is the probability of a specified uncertain event occurring and the consequences. Any factor that affects the performance of a project can be a source of risk for an organization.
The risk arises when this effect has an uncertain and significant impact on an organization’s competitiveness. In this context, the management of risk in projects and its corporate impact is currently one of the main topics of interest for researchers and practitioners working in the area of project management.
This Special Issue will focus on symbioses between Project Risk Assessment and Corporate Behavior in order to support organizational sustainability. Contributions concerning theoretical approaches as well as case studies are welcome.
