chapter  4
The Project-Oriented Organization
Pages 22

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book discusses the results of the research study into constructing a viable Human Resource Management (HRM) system for the project-oriented organization in order to raise the HR-related potential that projects can bring. While the goal of the working model was to provide a structure to analyse a HRM system in the context of the project-oriented organization, the final Model: project-oriented HRM system serves as one possible way of describing a viable HRM system for the project-oriented organization. As the project-oriented organization applies permanent and temporary structures, the organization is a rather differentiated and decentralized organization. Essential stakeholders of a project-oriented HRM system are the HR department and the Project Management Office. Project personnel are an important group of personnel in the project-oriented organization. The HRM system uses Managing by Projects as organizational strategy.
