LABUSCHAGNE, J.T.  e  STEYN, H.. Development of a project management methodology for the consulting engineering industry. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.1, pp. 69-80. ISSN 1012-277X.

This paper describes the characteristics of a project management methodology that is currently used in the consulting engineering industry in South Africa. Based on currently-used methodologies in other industries, and on a Delphi survey conducted in several consulting engineering companies, guidelines for a project management methodology for the consulting engineering industry are proposed. Respondents of the survey were in full agreement on typical project life cycle phases. They were also in agreement that a lack of project management knowledge and maturity prevents the successful implementation of such a methodology in a company. Lastly, the respondents agree that, by applying a project management methodology in the South African consulting engineering industry, more consistent results regarding time, cost, and quality could be achieved.
