Abstract

Monitoring and review are very essential management tools for ensuring that project objectives in construction are fully accomplished and that the project remains on track. However, it appears that little research has been conducted in South Africa,on the relationship of monitoring and review with project success of contractor especially within small and medium contractors (SMEs). Hence, the current study aims to empirically establish this relationship at project level of construction SMEs. To achieve this aim, a structured questionnaire was used to collect data from SMEs who were conveniently sampled in the Gauteng province of South Africa. The data was analysed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 23,computing inferential statistics. Empirical findings revealed that project success was positively influenced by monitoring and review. This was an indication that project monitoring and review in construction are important risk management practices that enhance project management decision making and hence influence project success. The findings recommend contractors to fully implement monitoring as part of their project risk management activities.
