The purpose of this study is to draw a comparison between Traditional, Agile and Hybrid Project management methodologies in terms of their suitability and applicability in Information Technology (IT) organizations. While there are numerous Project Management methodologies available the researcher has selected these three dominant Project Management Methodologies namely, Traditional, Agile and Hybrid in order to determine if the Project Management environment needs to take a step back or forward or stay where it is to remain competitive in the current demanding IT environment accordingly.

The structure of the work is as follows. First, a review of the current literature on the Project Management Methodologies. What are their strengths, weaknesses and perceptions of each of the methodologies under study? Second, a quantitative analysis to collect and process primary data from the market or rather from individuals who are exposed to these methodologies on a daily basis in the Indian and the Irish marketplace. These individuals are IT professionals working at various organizational hierarchies across IT organizations in India and Ireland. Lastly, the analysis and discussions of the findings, compared with those of the previous literature. This study also aims towards contributing literature and perspective towards the field of project management as a whole and the adoption of project management methodologies to organizations within the IT industry.
