Contemporary enterprises, focused on external business environment, define their strategic targets, with regard to the context of market and customer requirements.Their internal organization form should aim towards transformations, driven by global economic, political and social processes.This, further involves rejecting of existing stereotypes, distribution of tasks and functions performance, as well as a possibility to adapt in response to environment variations, being well exemplified by project driven organizations. Management of individual single orders in enterprises with functional structures can be treated as “project driven orders” management.The orders may have manufacturing or service type. From this reason it is necessity to implement project driven approach for efficient performance in these enterprises. The paper presents the current state of information, determiners of orders management transformation towards project driven approach and the preliminary research results, obtained from analysis of project driven orders management efficiency in chosen Polish construction enterprises from Opole Province.The research aimed at encompassing a context focused on competencies and knowledge development within the group of enterprises under research, resulting from a permanent need of transformation within companies, managing project driven orders, from traditional organization types to dynamic project driven organizations, with features of knowledge-based organizations.
