Abstract


The issue related to the introduction of new project management approaches is regarded in this article. The evolution of project management methods has its roots in the 1930s. Nevertheless, in Russia, project management as a professional discipline and a set of specific methodology for effective management, wasn't in demand until the 90s. In recent years, methodology and project management tools are constantly improving. The problem of successful implementation of projects is one of the most actual one for a modern company. Moreover, company's results and its competitive advantages depend on successfully implemented projects. One of the new approaches to project management is a method of implementing of quick-impact activities. The work reviews the successful experience of its introduction by the World Bank and by Avery Dennison Company. The authors identified a number of advantages of this method, but at the same time, the authors concluded that companies should not reject completely traditional methods of project management. It would be better to find the best combination of quick-impact activities and long-term activities, and to combine found solutions in the overall strategy of project implementation.
