IT infrastructure projects have long been an overlooked field superseded by the more popular software development silos and cross-functional project teams when it comes to enterprise Agile transformations. This paper presents a systematic literature review by leveraging a qualitative research methodology based on empirical evidence provided in contemporary scholarly research articles to explore how certain variables such as organizational culture- including team structure, leadership hierarchy, geolocation, etc. along with an organization’s change management processes affect the adoption of a Hybrid/Agile project management methodology, focusing on reported challenges and critical success factors that define such large-scale enterprise transformations. The salient features from the conclusion of this preliminary research endeavor point to a direct relationship between certain aspects such as the size of the organization, stakeholder buy-in, and inherent resistance to change playing pivotal roles that define success within IT infrastructure teams and associated projects. This research endeavor and literature review also identifies a plethora of opportunities within IT infrastructure project management practices for future research based on the gaps that have been identified in contemporary literature.
