Project management is said to have lost its relevance for innovation initiatives because it overemphasizes planning and control over flexibility, leading to approaches that are poorly adapted to high-uncertainty endeavors (Lenfle & Loch, 2010). In response, the concepts of targeted flexibility (Lenfle & Loch, 2010) and adaptive project management (Shenhar & Dvir, 2007) have been proposed. Under this paradigm, the specific characteristics of a project -- its uncertainty (Lenfle & Loch, 2010), structural and dynamic complexity (Brady & Davies, 2014), or complexity, novelty, technology, and pace (Shenhar & Dvir, 2007) -- are systematically considered to tailor project management approaches that are adapted to project needs. This research investigates how proposed adaptation of project management occurs in a context that organizes all work in projects and has very high levels of innovation -- product development in small and medium technology companies with manufactured products

In this landmark book, Preston Smith attributes the recent decline in innovation to pressure from financial markets that drives management toward rigid development approaches such as phased development processes, Six Sigma, and project office. These processes have unintentionally (but effectively) made changes during development more difficult, disruptive, and expensive, while the need for change continues at an accelerating pace. Flexible Product Development is a hands-on resource that provides the tools and strategies needed to restore flexibility to any organization and remove the obstacles that stand in the way of responsive new product development. Preston Smith introduces approaches that can enhance development process flexibility by creating and maintaining development options, delaying decisions, and, in general, reducing the cost of change. Step-by-step, he explains the basics of flexible product development, provides a broad array of flexibility-enhancing tools, and guides the reader in modifying the organization?s values to embrace this new way of operating.
