The aim of the article is to introduce a project-management efficiency model in order to rank the dimensions of efficient project management in the public sector.
There is a need to develop and introduce measurement instruments that would enable decision-makers to prioritise the important dimensions of efficient project management. The results of the model will also demonstrate how project management acts as the primary function to enhance organisational performance, codified through improved logical endstate programmes, work ethics and process contributions.
The efficiency model/instrument that was developed can act as a tool to enable project managers to determine the important dimensions of efficient project management in their specific organisations.
A greater level of efficiency can be achieved if the organisation can work more efficiently and provide more effective services. The introduction of efficient project-management practices for an organisation is of the utmost importance in helping the organisation to fundamentally adapt to external threats to its existence and focus its endeavours in a coordinated manner.
