Abstract

[Taken from document 5] This thesis has the main objectives of identifying the route selection process, used for choosing a method of strategic projects’ implementation, used in practice and assessing the relevant Key Decision Factors (KDF) in that decision making process. The study is based on conclusions from previous research documents and the latest findings from literature review. Past literature relied on neoclassical normative project management theory to provide a set of guiding principles, and focused on proximity to specific implementation directions. In modern literature, however, to the topic has been viewed through the prism of a different paradigm. Moreover, the qualitative research chosen in this study adopted a realist approach, attempting to understand the implementation routes phenomenon. This methodology comprised semi-structured interviews of participants, observation of three Greek organisations in the service sector, and collection of documents. Subsequently, data analysis called for results from qualitative research related to, and triangulated with, findings of literature review. As a result, a list of Key Decision Factors and the route selection framework was developed.
