BARRY, M-L.  e  UYS, L.. An investigation into the status of project management in South Africa. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.1, pp. 29-44. ISSN 1012-277X.

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.
