Abstract

Previous studies have attempted to determine how the success of South African IT projects related to the project management maturity of the organisations that executed the projects. The study reported in this article was conducted during 2010 in the engineering and construction sectors. This paper reports on a structured questionnaire distributed to 1,625 individuals mainly in the South African engineering and construction industries, from which 255 responses were received. 'Project success' was self-defined by the respondents, who identified 'project success' within their unique environments and contexts. The bulk of the projects (46%) were considered successful. The average perceived project management maturity level was 2.88.

Vorige studies het bepaal hoe die sukses van Suid-Afrikaanse IT projekte vergelyk met die projekbestuursvolwassenheid van die organisasies wat die projekte uitgevoer het. Hierdie studie is uitgevoer gedurende 2010 in die ingenieurs- en konstruksiebedrywe. 'n Gestruktu-reerde vraelys is versprei aan 1,625 mense wat meestal werksaam was in die Suid-Afrikaanse ingenieurswese- en konstruksiebedrywe, en 255 antwoorde is ontvang. 'Projeksukses' is selfgedefinieer deur die respondente op grond van hulle unieke omgewings en kontekste. Die grootste hoeveelheid van die projekte (46%) is as suksesvol gereken. Die gemiddelde waargeneemde vlak van projekbestuursvolwassenheid was 2.88.
