This research delves into the current state of project management and how blockchain technology is beginning to transform it. Its authors identify five key areas where blockchain-based platforms and applications can support the efforts of the project management office, including creating and managing digital records, exchanging digital assets, verifying and reinforcing acceptable performance, building reputation systems, and executing smart contracts. It presents case studies of enterprises that are currently deploying blockchain to manage clinical trials, construction projects, and the provenance and custody of assets in collaborations with customers and suppliers.
