Abstract. The article presents the results of research conducted in an international enterprise responsible for IT project implementation. The carried out analysis of the case study with the use of surveys and data synthesis allowed the major factors causing problems connected with project management to be identified. The identified factors were aggregated and then, by using four key variables, a rhomboidal model adaptation was proposed to facilitate the choice of the best method of project management. The proposed solution may aid Project Managers choosing the most appropriate method of project management as well as measuring and monitoring risk indicators.
