Nataliia Stanislavivna Krasnokutska, Tetiana Oleksandrivna Osetrova


Introduction. Understanding of the historical stages of the formation of project management methods is necessary to determine its key characteristics and peculiarities. This approach makes it possible to identify the laws of development of society in connection with the distribution of the principles of project management, to identify areas that are not considered in scientific works in sufficient quantities, as well as to identify the main trends in the development of project management methodology.

Purpose. The article aims to study the development of the methodology of project management, to implement its periodization with the identification of major events that have influenced management practices, as well as the formation of the own view as for the current trends in project management.

Method (methodology). In order to achieve the goal, such common scientific methods as method of analysis and synthesis, method of system approach, graphical method have been used in the research.

Results. The periodization of approaches and methods of project management have been substantiated. Its main concepts have been systematized. These concepts have been developed in scientific works during the 1960-2000s. The results of successful projects over the last 20 years have been analysed. The main tendencies of project management development have been grounded.
