The success of each organization depends on its ability to quickly adapt to changes in the external environment. Project management (PM) is a necessity for the successful functioning of any company that deals with project activities. TPM (traditional project management) methods have been developed since the sixties and are suitable for large long-term projects in a stable environment. However, nowadays, MPM (modern project management) methods are in higher demand. This is justified by the rapid variability of the external environment, the frequent updating of the information field. According to The Standish Group’s Chaos Report, in 2020 only 29% of completed IT projects found their projects’ results successful. The practical purpose of the study is to develop recommendations for the initial implementation of project management in the IT department of RusHOLTS. This is due to the fact that IT companies often do not have ready-made boxed solutions, each order is rather a project. The results of the study should provide practitioners with useful information on what steps should be taken in stages for the initial implementation of project management in a company with a focus on the IT sphere. This project work is in demand by a real company called RusHOLTS, which has a business need - to increase the performance indicators of the IT department and, as a result, increase profits. Unlike an external consultant, the author of this work knows the internal specifics of the company and can objectively consider the new opportunities of the IT department, introducing the correct and appropriate modern methods of project management. Key words: management, methods, PM, TPM, MPM, APM, traditional project management, modern project management, Agile, waterfall, IT, company, RusHOLTS.
