It is up to the project manager who leads the project to choose a project method and use this as a tool to get the project to be successful together with a project team. Some researchers argues that it is hard to stay with just one project method, it could be better to mix two or three to make them more suitable for the project and the project team. This thesis will interview three project managers and see how they use project methods in different projects. Are they staying with the project method as they are explained in... (More)
Almost every organizations works with projects, since a project is a onetime task with a clear beginning and an end and have never be done before. It is hard to say that a specific project method will suit all projects. It is up to the project manager who leads the project to choose a project method and use this as a tool to get the project to be successful together with a project team. Some researchers argues that it is hard to stay with just one project method, it could be better to mix two or three to make them more suitable for the project and the project team. This thesis will interview three project managers and see how they use project methods in different projects. Are they staying with the project method as they are explained in the theory or are them mixing them for what suit the project best? (Less)
