Have you ever kept a client or your boss waiting on the phone while you've searched the piles of papers on your desk for an important document?
If you have, then your boss or your client may not have a good opinion of you, because in a key encounter, you've let them down.
And when you're under pressure, can you retrieve information quickly and easily?
Spending precious time looking for documents can take the pleasure out of any kind of creative work you might be doing – and it adds to your stress levels as well.
Attendees will leave with guidelines and practical resources to begin managing their personal archives.
The purpose of this paper is to introduce project business as a research field.
After a while, many such documents build up, leading to a lot of clutter.
It's highly unlikely that you'll ever find time to go back and get all of that information organized, especially considering that you're usually under pressure with other things. Effective filing boils down to this: store the information in folders – by category, and in a sequence that makes sense to you.
It also suggests specific research areas and themes within the framework that are relevant and contribute to new knowledge in the project business field.
The project business framework described in this paper, including the suggested research areas and themes, is important in focusing research and for development of practical application of project‐based business activities in firms and in public organizations.
