    The Covid-19 condition has created an unprecedented situation for companies involved in all levels of projects. Project team members have had to face unparalleled challenges, which caused companies to change the way they approach project management activities. As part of this adaptation, the study wanted to observe whether there are tangible changes taking place, and if so what is the impact of those changes within organizations. To explore this, a quantitative study with 100 participants was carried out. The variables under study included looking at methods used for project management, human resource factors and their organizational approach, the impact on key success factors and how delays have impacted these project execution techniques. The results indicated that the variables used have all impacted project execution, indicating their importance during this unprecedented period. With these findings, project team members and organizations can start developing systems which can mitigate the external risk and its transfer onto projects, something which has come full force in the current business environment. There were several key findings which were part of the current study. The current study looked at for different variables and their impact on how projects were being executed, and the results indicated that all of the factors including the impact of delays, key success factors, methods used, as well as human resource upskill were all significantly correlated with the variable. This clearly indicates, the project team members will face differential headwinds as they go into this coronavirus situation, which then requires them to influence the way they carry out their projects, requiring them to tweak important factors around how the project execution takes place.
