2015 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
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.
