Abstract [en]

The original notion of projectification related to organizations and project management was straightforward. Activities formerly regarded or handled as normal matters or routines were transformed to be projects with a specific task associated with each project and a focus on efficiency in terms of time lapse and resources. However, over time the notion has appeared in a wide set of narratives.

In this paper we provide examples of narratives intending to pave the way for an academic discussion aiming towards theorizing projectification processes. We include evidence of a need to see beyond the simplistic notions and also allude to meta-theory.
