Abstract Literature has been used to support the argument for adopting a project management methodology (PMM) in local government and to describe the potential benefits, including enhanced accountability and transparency, greater consistency in delivery, increased control, better risk management and better staff morale and job satisfaction. However, the question remains: Why have such PMMs not been implemented more widely in local government? Research is needed to investigate the barriers and catalysts of PMM adoption, which might facilitate PMM implementation.
