This paper considers two key themes from the Rethinking Project Management Network activities: projectification and managing multiple projects. Following analysis of cases presented during network meetings, the findings are set in the context of the extant literature, and discuss the development of the concept of projectification over the past decade. Three key conclusions are drawn from this work. Firstly, projectification has considerably extended the definition of ‘a project’ way beyond the current definitions in the literature. Secondly, projectification has not been a panacea for individuals or organisations. Lastly, during the decade reviewed by this paper, we have seen the establishment of programmes and portfolios of programmes as a mechanism for managing in organisations. This represents a developed phenomenon we have termed programmification. All three of these conclusions have implications for research and practice, which are reflected in a research agenda and specific research questions.
