Chapter Summary

"'Project' functions explicitly to theorize the connection between human actions and the societal context in which individual actions are meaningful". In author's reflection, he focuses on two points: Reconstructing the development of collaborative projects can be a tool for figuring out the societal and psychological conditions of how projects can be successfully planned and managed. and successful realization of a project does not only depend on its conceptual and operative conditions, but also on the motivational and emotional conditions of how the participants of a project harmonize the project's goals with their personal motives and create personal sense of their collaboration. In the course of project's development, its goals as well as its tools become fine-tuned. When a project begins to step out of its marginal existence and prepares to influence the societal mainstream, the acquisition and distribution of resources, powers and public recognition become important.

Keywords: collaborative projects; emotional conditions; project's development; psychological conditions
