Abstract

Project management is increasingly considered a powerful tool to tackle the challenges of businesses in a globalized economy, where the need for innovation is decisive. At the same time it has emerged as a field of knowledge which has been expanding and studied under various perspectives. In this chapter the authors aim to contribute to the knowledge on project management practices in the manufacturing sector. The results presented here characterize project management practices in the Portuguese metalworking industrial sector. Data analysis from thirty companies show that risk and integration areas are often overlooked in project management and need to be promoted.
