Research on the effects of new business development project relatedness and autonomy on project performance has shown ambiguous results. We develop novel insights into this relationship by addressing the dynamic interplay between these concepts. Our findings indicate that project performance is enhanced if project autonomy is increased for unrelated projects and decreased for related projects. However, the interaction effect turns out to be negative for achieving cost objectives. This indicates that more autonomous projects try to increase project performance at the expense of achieving their cost objectives. Another key finding is that these relationships change over the course of the NBD-process. This implies that projects should be managed differently in the development versus the commercialization phase of the NBD-process.
