Findings: It has been found that general characteristics of raditional methodologies (PMI, IPMA, APM,YUPMA) make them more adequate to be implemented in arger and more complex projects such as: investment, military, manufacturing, overhaul, etc. projects. On the other hand, general characteristics of agile ethodologies lead to a conclusion that these methodologies are more suitable to use for IT projects as well as for some smaller and less complex projects, such as devising various studies, project reports, etc. Contribution: This study presents the meta analysis of the existing methodologies and provides the synthesis of key features of different applicable methodologies. This paper can be treated as a bottom line for further research oriented towards defining a specific ethodology, adequate for certain groups of projects.
