This is a conceptual paper that summarizes both existential and evolutionary approaches to project management enquiry. The intention of which is that both concepts might be more accessible and to the project management scholarly and practitioner community. The paper compares the major project management literature on both approaches and draws some concluding remarks about the basic presuppositions and utility of each. For example, the existential approach offers a capability to unmask the power struggles in project management, and the evolutionary approach offers a capability to shift the balance of power.
