An exploratory study of gender in project management: Interrelationships with role, location, technology, and project cost


This study explores whether gender differences in project managers are related to gender differences in their team members. Gender differences are explored in the context of project managers' and team members' location to one another, the project team's use of technology, and the cost and size of the project teams. Using log-linear analysis of 563 project team members' responses, several significant findings are reported—including the likelihood of same-gender project manager and team member dyads as well as gender differences in project contextual factors. Implications for organizational and project management researchers and decision makers conclude the article.
