gdb July Educational Seminar

Join Dr David Eggleton and Dr Angela Gao from the University of Sussex Business School for July's Educational Seminar.


'Dynamic conditions for project success'.

Dr David Eggleton

Lecturer in Project Management with Innovation Studies


This presentation identifies organisational, professional, and socio-economic dynamic conditions that can enhance project outcomes and explores how project professionals and project-based organisations have already applied them.


We highlight opportunities for project management organisations and professionals to improve project success and project outcomes, including prioritising informal mentoring, improving data analysis and decision making with technology and AI, and establishing knowledge management roles for more effective learning from past projects. For project professionals, this work advises on specific mindsets and activities that can help to support and develop their teams. These activities can help to ensure that their projects create a legacy that can underpin long-term organisational success.

Dr Angela Gao

o Why sustainability matters in terms of value creation and profit creation in the long term?
