Organizations regularly assume that the culture, values, dynamic and organization of their temporary project organizations are merely a smaller version of the original parent. Given that project organizations are made up of people and teams drawn, in most cases, from outside and inside the parent, these assumptions are nonsensical. But they do explain why the HR function finds it difficult to adapt to the project environment. Martina Huemann's research in Human Resource Management in the Project-Oriented Organization, offers insight into an approach that is designed to align HR to the needs of the project organization, in terms of management structure, reward, recruitment and performance systems. The text analyses how the modern HR organization stacks up alongside the temporary organization that is the project, to identify the HR constraints and needs of the project organisation and offer a model of project-oriented HRM. Professor Huemann had a deep interest in how and why change processes come into existence and how to design and enable them. In her book she endeavors to bridge theory and practice, strategy and operations.

Review:

'I first learned about the Project-oriented Organization and the theories and methods of Martina Huemann in 2000. She is one of the pioneers and was in charge of research projects in this area for the IPMA at that time. This book represents her research achievements in this field over the last 15 years and is a great contribution to the PM profession.'
Anbang Qi, Nankai University, China and Chairman of the Research Management Board of the International Project Management Association (IPMA)

'In order to be successful as a project oriented organisation, the HR management has a lot more responsibilities than in the past - the whole strategy of HR needs to change. This book gives a very comprehensive and ready-to-use overview of what is needed in this area.'
Mag. Brigitte Schaden, President of Projekt Management Austria

'The book illustrates the complexities and difficulties of HRM applied to projects. It explains, in an easy-to-read way, the roles and the human-characteristic requirements to fit, as well as organizational and PM concepts required to fully understand what a HRM system for PM should be. Moreover, the book presents a model for such a HRM system. It constitutes an excellent reference for both scholars and practitioners, and is an invaluable support tool in teaching PM.'
Juan Carlos Nogueira, Universidad ORT Uruguay

'I find this book by Dr Huemann an important contribution to the field because of its original approach to the human factor in project management. Being involved in projects and in contact with project practitioners for more than 25 years, I realized that experienced project managers ask themselves 'Who?' before 'What?', 'When?' and 'How?' when starting a project. Dr Huemann addresses this question analyzing crucial matters such as temporary organizations, project based organizations, the roles of the project manager and other stakeholders, and human resource management in projects. This work has also a very deep analysis of current literature on the subject, with rich quotations and reference. I will recommend this book to HR professionals and project practitioners when they ask me about projects and the 'Who?' question.'
Jose Daniel Esterkin, Director and co-founder of IAAP; PMI Argentina Chapter President; and PMI Academic Advisory Group member

'Martina Huemann successfully manages to prove how important it is to relate project management and human resource management in organisations. She offers an applicable model of a 'project-oriented HRM system' for managing project personnel in the project-oriented organization. With this model and her elaborations on this topic, this book is a 'must' for practitioners and researchers in the project management community.'
Dagmar Zuchi, enable2change

'This book not only offers comprehensive scientific background information and a working model 'towards a viable project-oriented HRM system', but also supports the development of project-oriented organizations. I strongly recommend it for line managers with project business, for their HRM and, for example, for PMO or project excellence leaders who are interested in rethinking the status quo and are striving for continuous improvement.' --Erwin Weitlaner, Principal Consultant, Siemens AG
