Internet of Things (IoT) or Industrial Internet is a modern day catchword, which over the past few years has tremendously impacted numerous aspects of almost-all the advanced technology fields. IoT framework envisions transforming the everyday objects into intelligent systems, while working under a common infrastructure and by connecting the global network of devices and machines over the internet. Based on many underlying interdisciplinary ecosystems, like sensor network, embedded systems, big data platforms, cloud computing and service-oriented architecture; IoT projects are non-traditional in many ways. Such projects involve research and development phase, more technical work, are lengthy, require advanced skill sets and lacks well-defined business models. A recent alarming rate of IoT project failures provide incentive to look for project management philosophies, which would emphasize on more flexibility, agility, teamwork and a developing a strong technical framework. This thesis work provides overview of IoT concepts and through a systematic review of scholarly research papers, blogs, review articles, and other literature available online, it addresses the current managerial challenges for such projects. Finally, to solve this issue a focused survey was conducted and collected data was analyzed. Based on the responses from IoT professionals various suggestions are made, which can be used to improve management of such projects.
