The contribution to new knowledge is the identification of an Australian perspective of themes and research issues that dominate the project management sector. The editorial provides a geo-economic perspective of local and international impacts across a range of industries where projects are managed. The capacity for Australian project managers to deliver an $AUS 921 billion pipeline of existing and potential major capital projects is limited. These limitations were explored at a research forum where active researchers collaborated to establish a research agenda. The Australian perspective of the research agenda included the broad themes of understanding the interplay of project, community, globalisation and professionalization in an emergent economy. These themes reflect the need to improve the delivery of large and complex projects, which will require project leadership, cultural change and skill development strategies. These themes were addressed in the papers submitted for the special issue which were drawn together in the editorial with reference to the engaged scholarship approach of the research forum.
