This doctoral research will study the mechanisms put in place by organizations facing very dynamic environments to manage projectportfolios when the uncertainty level is high. The theoretical basis will include the literature on Project Portfolio Management,Organization Theory (Weick’s Sensemaking) and Strategy Theory (Dynamic Capabilities). The unit of analysis will be the processes put in place for sensing uncertainty, seizing opportunities and transforming the organization. The study will be exploratory in nature and will use two case studies: one large Canadian financial institution and one software product development organization.
