A projectized organization is an organization that treats everything as a project and not as a routine process.

There are several differences between projectized and other types of organizations:

- In projectized organizations, the Project Manager has all the authority he wants, as opposed to matrix and functional organizations, where the Project Manager has no or little authority.
- The Project Manager owns the resources, as opposed to matrix and functional organizations where he borrows the resources.
- Resources are only allocated to projects in projectized organizations. In other types of organizations, resources report to their functional managers and usually do routine, non-project work.
