We refer to two different research papers to explain the vastly different views of researchers in this area. But before we do that, we will quickly provide an overview of the existing ways in which projects are classified. This is beautifully summarized by Archibald [1] in his publication.

4 Types of Project Environments There are multiple perspectives used to define the types of project environments. The most popular ones categorize projects by: 1. Sector 2. Function 8 1 Introduction 3. Organizational size 4. Value 5. Duration, etc. In fact, these perspectives are so popular that most recruiters and recruitment advertisements seem to overly stress on the need to know them. Again, this is the ‘process’-centric approach described earlier. , they actually do not ‘facilitate’ the management process of the project.
