The Adaptive Organization 2018: A Benchmark of Changing Approaches to Project Management
Project management practice is in the midst of a sea change. Adaptive methods that once occupied a specialist niche are being mainstreamed in response to a competitive climate that demands greater flexibility, more transparency, and faster results. The new emphasis on adaptive methods in PMI’s PMBOK® Guide provides an additional nudge for organizations to formalize their experiments with new approaches to planning, tracking, risk, change management, and benefits realization in an agile world. The Adaptive Organization Research Report is a study of to what degree organizations employ adaptive approaches in their project management practice and their impact on project and organizational outcomes. As always, this report determines best practices and provides industry knowledge to help businesses achieve organizational success. The research can be used to benchmark organizations as well as to help build a business case to justify the value of a specific project management approach for an industry and organization.
