Football is one of the most popular sports in the world. In this thesis it is aimed to answer the question:
What can project managers learn from the managers of the Icelandic national football team in project management? The thesis is built up in two ways: Qualitative study and quantitative study. Two in-depth interviews were conducted with the Icelandic national football team´s managers and one open question was sent out to the Icelandic national football team. The IPMA eye of competence was used as a framework to categorize the results. The conclusions are that values, structured working environment, mutual trust, mutual respect and repetition are the main building blocks for the Icelandic national team´s success. Football environment provides a good testing ground for project management, but since fewer
variables affect the outcome in football it can be difficult to apply it directly to business.
