By considering the literature relating to the application of evolutionary principles to the practices and artefacts of modern project management, this paper sets out an argument for an open source body of knowledge for project management. Practitioners and academics alike are challenged to rebuild and develop their profession by rethinking project management in the light of evolution. Whilst acknowledging that we in the Western corporate environment are inextricable from the project management practices and artefacts we are driven to produce, this paper argues that it is imperative that we intervene in the developmental process of the project management body of knowledge and engineer it to become more open, equitable, and domain specific.
