News - 08 November 2018 - Communication BK

Sarah Heemskerk graduated with a thesis on applied leadership styles on various contract types. She researched how the leadership style of project managers connects to the rise of integrated contracts in the sector. 

The judges value her research enthusiasm and see a clear path for follow-up research. The research results show that project managers are selected based on their availability. There are no significant differences between contract types and leadership styles. This conclusion raises the question if project managers could be selected more consciously. 

The Projectmanagement Master Research Award is awarded by IPMA-Nederland & PMI Netherlands Chapter Nederlandse Projectmanagement. The award promotes excellent research by master students in the area of project management. The gold award of this year was awarded to Annelot Vergruggen, alumna of the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geo Sciences at TU Delft. Read the full jury report here.
