One of the major challenges facing many Engineering companies today is a lack of sufficient resources to staff all projects concurrently. The objective is to understand the challenges that Engineering projects experience due to a lack of resources. All projects require human resources because they play an important role in any project. These resources may contribute to either a projects success or failure. That is why having the correct people for the project is extremely important. The most common and widely experienced challenge on a project is insufficient team skills. Organisations should consider leadership’s skills, human management and skills management to ensure a projects success. Engineers are required to have technical knowledge and skills, understand standards of engineering practice and have intellectual skills. The findings revealed that a projects success is achievable by complying with the planned budget, time lines and performance criteria.
