Abstract

The increasing complexity of the world reinforces the urgent need for rethinking project management. Large research and innovation projects today must meet expectations of increased efficiency, deliver faster results, and challenge us to think differently. This study aimed to explore how an agile hybrid methodology unfolded over time in a large EU-funded research and innovation project and how value was created. We found that, implementation of agile practices in large research and innovation projects is beneficial, as it helps to shift the focus from producing deliverables to creating value. Further, agile practices contribute to increased impact and early value creation for those involved. However, project management practices can be understood quite differently across project types and should consequently be implemented according to the characteristics of the local context. There is currently a need for further research in this field, and data will be continuously collected throughout the rest of the four-year project period.
