Abstract [en]

The notion of projectification was popularized in the mid nineteen nineties. Since then, the interest and scientific scope has increased heavily. Therefore, this paper aims to take stock of the development and explore the phenomenon of projectification, where the main trends and emerging research areas will be outlined. Through an integrative literature review, a total of 86 journal articles, books and conference contributions, have been analyzed. The review, among others, illustrate that there is an increased variety of topics represented and a growing interest in the use of theory. Moreover, a number of upcoming fields, and a movement of inquiries from primarily the meso-level, to include challenges on both micro- and macro-level are identified. Based on the results it is suggested that future research should move away from silo-thinking, try to cover some blank spots highlighted, and to engage in new ideas to further develop projectification studies.
