Appendix A - Listings of Industry Sectors A through H
Comments on the table as developed from the
- Below each source document title in columns A through H is shown the number
of discrete entries at the group level in the original source document.
- For simplicity in displaying the comparison between sources in the table,
we have grouped a number of lesser industries together in a given column. Hence
the number of occupied rows is less than the original number shown at the top.
- Note that the entries in column A through H are themselves headings that cluster
numerous similar project management Areas of Application, so that the Table as
a whole covers the whole area of potential project activity.
- Column I contains our suggested representative term for each row in question.
- Column J identifies the general category of the row according to one of the
four types, 1 through 4, displayed in the Basic 2x2 Project Classification
table according to Figure 2.
- Finally, the four that we feel are best representative of the industries in
each of the categories are hi-lighted in yellow. This selection is based generally
on the size of the industry in question and the extent of recognition of that
industry in project management literature.
Of course, our selection necessarily tends to be very subjective, especially
as many industries engage in projects that range from simple maintenance to advanced
