Other Faculty Contributed Resources

To enhance the compendium of available teaching resources in project management, faculty are invited to submit materials that they have used effectively in their teaching. It may be as simple as a helpful reference to an article or book or as complex as a teaching case with a detailed instructor’s manual. Educators who are considering a new approach to teaching a particular topic or course may find a valuable resource here, developed by a colleague in another university or even a different country. We encourage you to expand the library of teaching resources. Contribute a resource—search for a resource—use a resource.

USING PHILOSOPHICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL TRIANGULATION TO IDENTIFYING INTERESTING PHENOMENA

The scarcity of accepted research designs within each research philosophy paradigm limits the variance of research approaches, which reduces the chances to identify real new phenomena. We propose that researchers use triangulation of alternative research philosophies to identify interesting new phenomena, provide alternative perspectives to complex problems, and gain a richer and more holistic understanding of complex project management problems. Philosophical triangulation extends methodological triangulat
