Projects and the project management environment change constantly. Project managers have to adjust to these changes constantly. Since the industry went "lean", the lean revolution also influenced projects and project management. Lean principles have changed the way projects are done today. Project management was typically done in a deterministic way, using waterfall, and that lead to problems in many projects. A deterministic approach is not flexible and changes are discouraged, complex and even avoided even when they would be necessary. The deterministic approach has lead to project disasters in a specific type of project. In an adaptive approach, lean approach, projects are managed differently, there is more freedom to manage changes.
