Project scholarship suggests that an increasing volume of activity in organisations, economies and societies occurs in the form of temporary projects. The aim of the stream of work is to build a contextual understanding that addresses the long-standing question of “Why business organisations participate in projects”. Discussing value creation, capture and destruction patterns for the owner, project-based firm and the temporary project domains of project organising, we develop a typology of project value domains for business organisations.
