Abstract

Temporality is at the heart of project organizing, yet it has received surprisingly little theoretical attention within the research field. Implicitly, most work in the field has taken an objective view of time which “exists independently of human action: [is] exogenous, absolute” (Orlikowski & Yates, 2002) and project organizing is “time-paced” (Brown & Eisenhardt, 1997). More recently, others have taken a subjective view of time as “socially constructed by human action; culturally relative” (ibid), and project organizing is an emergent phenomenon creating a “negotiated order” (Strauss, 1988). Drawing on their own research in project organizing, Orlikowski & Yates (1994) move beyond these binary views by drawing on practice theory in which time is “constituted by, as well as constituting, human action” through “temporal structuring” (2002).
