Abstract: Nowadays, management is constantly seeking balance and completion. It is nourishing itself from a variety of disciplines to exploit best practices. Lean and agile concepts are no more limited to their first fields, namely manufacturing and software development. They are now extending to areas where the traditional project management model had predominated before. In this research, we performed a systematic review of theoretical and empiric studies about lean and agile. The content comes from a selection of peer-reviewed scientific output. This study focused mainly on hypotheses, backgrounds, and scopes of approaches in question. A qualitative text analysis software tool was run to extract and analyses data according to several dimensions. This use leads above all to a bibliometric study by developing descriptive statistics. Such an approach has made it possible to illustrate evidence on what existing literature reveals about the concepts involved in this present review. First, they revealed impacts of lean and agile on projects that deployed them conduct making a reliable assessment of their suitability. Second, highlighting trends and research trajectories allowed identifying future research streams from under-exploited research.
