Projects as part of an organization’s value delivery have gone through a challenging time. Some have failed, and others have performed despite the turbulent environment. The purpose of this study is to explore factors that influence, build or impact project resilience in organizations from various industries.  A systematic review and a bibliometric study are conducted on recent research throughout 2019 – 2022. The study will identify factors that relate to project resilience in the context of recent turbulent environment, the pandemic and consequent global economic slowdown.

 A systematic literature review is conducted on past research, complemented with a bibliometric study to further identify emerging or trending keywords that may serve as signals of a potential future study in project resilience, or organizational resilience.

There has been an increasing trend in research in project resilience. Based on the literature review, researchers are still far from agreeing to factors that build, affect, and influence resilience. Past empirical studies have shown relationship between resilience and project performance, others investigate the impact of numerous factors that influence project resilience. A network visualization was performed based on keywords in the articles to show ones with significance such as project management, construction management, human resources management, against less significant ones such as error mastery, knowledge management. 

The study examines Scopus-indexed articles that relate to project resilience published from 2019 – 2022 to have a more focused view of the recent disruption and to see how that has affected research in project resilience.
