Abstract [en]

Multi-project firms exist to make a profit from their project activities. This article addresses issues associated with profits and projects, which we acknowledge is undoubtedly the 'primary' concern of multi-project organizations.

Independent, academic studies in the area would be most welcome. The main reason they are probably not available is that standard accounting treatment does not capture information at the project level. Nevertheless, there are reasons to believe that profitability of projects would conform to an 80-20 rule, and longitudinal studies might show that firms become less, rather than more, profitable with age. Further, first time projects may be a nemesis for firms. Of course, empirial verification of these observations could lead to more effective management of multi-project firms.
