This paper investigates the properties of projects conducted in rapidly changing environments. These projects are challenged by the rapid introduction of new unknowns as they progress.

The difficulties posed by these projects are identified and the literature is reviewed for suitable approaches. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd and IPMA.
