Abstract: Motivation: The motivation to raise the issue was to draw atten-tion to disadvantages as and advantages of various project management concepts, in particular the group of agile and traditional methodologies within information technology (IT) projects. Aim: The aim was to demon-strate the statistical profitability of migration to the methodologies better suited for the adaptive industry in which the software-producing enterpris-es operate. The detailed aim was to show positive dependencies, if the management concept is correctly selected to meet the expectations of the client and the project. Materials and methods: The conclusions were based on a comparative analysis of a group of methodologies, as well as a verifi-cation of the research carried out by Scott Ambler + Associates company. Results: The conclusion was that the traditional approach to project man-agement does not fit into the canon of modern and adaptive techniques, that would meet the requirements set in the era of globalization by flexible IT projects. In addition, the analysis of responses provided by the respond-ents shows how drastically a change in approach to the entire project cycle affects the probability of success and reduces misunderstandings between client and contractor.
