The Adaptive Organization: A Benchmark of the Changing Approaches to Project Management

Posted on 12 Jun 2018


Today’s projects have high rates of change, complexity, and risk. Many organizations are turning to adaptive* approaches to project management to manage these projects, often in addition to, or as a hybrid with, more traditional predictive (or waterfall) project management approaches. This study seeks to discover to what degree organizations employ adaptive approaches in their project management practices, as well as their impact on project and organizational outcomes, to determine whether there are best practices and, if so, what they are. The survey is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition

*Note: Adaptive approaches include agile, iterative, and incremental methods.
