In the few decades of its existence, mathematical programming has evolved into an important branch of operations research and management science. This thesis consists of four papers in which we apply mathematical programming to real-life personnel scheduling and project management problems. We develop exact mathematical programming formulations. Furthermore, we propose effective heuristic strategies to decompose the original problems into subproblems that can be solved effciently with tailored mathematical programming formulations. We opt for solution methods that are based on mathematical programming, because their advantages in practice are a) the exibility to easily accommodate changes in the problem setting, b) the possibility to evaluate the quality of the solutions obtained, and c) the possibility to use general-purpose solvers, which are often the only software available in practice.
