Abstract

This research investigated the status of project management in South Africa. A total of 81 respondents participated. It was found that internal stakeholders are more likely to have similar opinions on project success than external stakeholders; and that project managers use optimistic reporting because they do not want to appear to let the project stakeholders down. The top five factors for achieving project success are teamwork, cost management, project planning, scope management, and leadership. The six most important indicators of project success are client/customer satisfaction, project team skill level, senior management buy-in, communication or project reporting, scope management, and on-time project delivery.

Hierdie navorsing ondersoek die status van projekbestuur in Suid-Afrika. Een-en-tagtig respondente het deelgeneem. Dit is bevind dat interne rolspelers meer geneig is om dieselfde opinies te hê oor projeksukses as eksterne rolspelers; en dat projekbestuurders optimisties is in verslaggewing omdat hulle nie die projekrolspelers wil teleurstel nie. Die top vyf faktore om projeksukses te haal is spanwerk, kostebestuur, projekbeplanning, bestekbestuur, en leierskap. Die ses belangrikste indikators van projeksukses is kliënttevredenheid, vaardigheid van die projekspan, inkoop van senior bestuur, kommunikasie of projekverslaggewing, bestekbestuur, en om die projek betyds af te lewer.
