Comments Regarding Appendix A
Appendix A sets out a Table of Industry Sectors as identified from different
- 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 in 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

** Healthcare and Public Services are two very large areas of administrative
type projects involving similar type outputs.
Note: Category Type 1 projects generally result in Craft/Tangible outcomes.
Type 2 projects generally result in Craft/Intangible outcomes.

Note: Category Type 3 projects generally result in Intellect/Tangible
outcomes. Type 4 projects generally result in Intellect/Intangible outcomes.
