Abstract

Hybrid Project Management (HPM) represents a blend of traditional and agile practices that many organizations are increasingly adopting to combine the best of both methodologies. However, academic literature lacks a comprehensive understanding of how and why organizations adopt HPM and how they execute projects under this combined approach. Utilizing a qualitative multiple-case study design, the study intends to develop a theoretical model that encapsulates the adoption process of HPM. Employing contingency theory, which suggests that the effectiveness of management practices is contingent upon the situational context, as the theoretical framework, we delve into the diverse organizational contexts influencing HPM adoption. The paper discusses the ongoing data collection and analysis process and anticipates valuable insights that could be critical for both academic discourse and practical implications in the project management field.
