The chapter is then summarized. Project Characteristics The Shenhar et al. Diamond Perspective: NCTP Shenhar (2001) argues that it would be a mistake to consider that there is a “one-size fits all” approach that is applicable to managing projects. This is relevant because we agree that project type has an impact on a series of strategic management factors, not least being procurement options. Shenhar departed from contingency theory developed by Lawrence and Lorsch (1967) to propose viewing project types based on scales of project scope and technological uncertainty.

For most projects, once they are sanctioned, they are very difficult to stop or substantially amend. This presents a serious limitation to PM and results in many project failures due to the weakness and vulnerability of sanctioning a project that cannot be stopped or substantially changed while being delivered (Klakegg, 2010).

We also needed to clarify our position in terms of our worldview; what we perceive as being a valid ontological, epistemological, and axiological stance to take in researching this topic.

Lastly, we indicated the literature that we felt was relevant to explore and to support conclusions made from this study.
