Jill Owen

Dr Jill Owen is a key player in the teaching and research of Project Management within the School of Business at University of New South Wales, Canberra Campus. Her research focuses on the project as a vehicle for organising work and on the role of knowledge based practices and informal processes in influencing how an organisation operates. This complements the contemporary shift of emphasis from the traditional focus on the technical processes of projects to the idea of projects as primarily social constructs that can be considered as social systems. Jill has published in refereed journals and conferences at both the national and international level.
