Abstract


А monograph is presented, whose purpose is to justify the need to adapt the system for human resources management to a multiproject context and to propose alternatives for making appropriate amendments. First chapter "Human resources management as a function of general management" examines the relationship between human resource management and organizational effectiveness in the light of the perception of human resources as the main competitive advantage of the modern organization and the criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of the management of human resources. Special attention is paid to the content and structure of this system. Chapter Two "The multiproject organization as a modern working environment" is dedicated to the project management as a management concept and clarifies the essence of project management, the concept of the project lifecycle, criteria and critical success factors of the project. Emphasis is placed on the multiproject organization as a natural environment of project management by clarifying the nature and characteristics of this type of organization and positioning options for structural projects in it. The focus in the chapter “Specifications of human resource management in the multiproject environment" is the need for changes in the management of human resources and alternatives to adapt the system for managing human resources to conditions of the multiproject environment through specific changes in its content and structure. Chapter Four "Human Resource Management in the multiproject environment" presents the results of an empirical study. Based on the outlined conceptual framework of the study, specifying the purpose, objectives, methodology and tools, consistently carried out a comparative analysis of human resources management as a strategic organizational priority project activity as a strategic organizational priority, efficiency and basic problems of multiproject medium degree of adapting the system for managing human resources for this protection (including substantive and structural changes) and formulate general conclusions and recommendations to the management of organizations.

Presented in the monograph results of thorough theoretical overview and conducted empirical research confirm the main research thesis - namely that traditional systems for managing human resources are inadequate for the work environment in the multiproject organization. It needs effective mechanisms for managing staff so as to contribute for achieving long-term strategic goals of the organization associated with its core "permanent" activity and the realization of short-term objectives of "temporary" project activity. Permanent context does not lose its relevance, but organizations need to find new approaches to its management, which requires a new way of thinking.
