Sammanfattning: Problematization: Pilot projects are highlighted as a useful tool in risk management. However, because there has been a perception that the data produced by them does not have academic validity and that there is a tendency for bias among publishers of scientific articles, the current research on pilot projects is limited. Several researchers believe that the current knowledge situation is not sufficient. Purpose: The purpose of the study is to map out a pilot project in its context, the main project, to understand how it is used as a risk management tool on the basis of conditions, preparation and implementation. Method: A case study has been made through a qualitative strategy, abductive approach and an iterative process. Based on an exploratory approach, the study has mapped the case company through five semi-structured interviews and document studies, to achieve the purpose of the study. Conclusion: The study's results show that the case company's choice of method for designing a pilot project works well by meeting the critical success factors for projects and based on the conditions they had. However, the method is not flawless or universal, it is adapted for risks that cannot be avoided and must be managed and accepted. We also propose that when using pilot projects it should be integrated into the main project's risk management process. Further expansion of the current theory for pilot projects is still necessary.
