Experience & Service
General Information

Peerasit’s Ph.D. research centered on the development of a decision support model for assigning multiple concurrent projects to project managers. Different from the models and criteria in the literature, his model and criteria emphasize the performance of the organization, projects, and project managers in project assignments. This emphasis enhances a significant contribution of the model and criteria to both theory and practice. 

 

Peerasit’s current research interests include project portfolio and multiple project management, strategic and value-focused project management, new product development, and strategic management. Peerasit has been engaged in several research projects, e.g. Building a strategic system approach to NASA’s project and program management (a grant from the Center for Program/Project Management Research, NASA, 2004-2005) and Effectiveness in project portfolio management (a grant from PMI, 2010-2011). His works have been published in IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, Journal of General Management, Journal of High Technology Management Research, International Journal of Project Management, and Engineering Management Journal.  Peerasit is a recipient of the 2007 Best Paper Award from IEEE Engineering Management Society and 2008 and 2009 Bright Idea Award in Project Management from the NJPRO Foundation, the public policy reserach affiliate of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA) and the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University. He is a co-author of Case Studies in Project, Program, and Organizational Project Management (Wiley 2010).
