Abstract In this study a special questionnaire was developed to study the connection between the application of a project management method (described by Platz) and job satisfaction of the personnel involved in the project. The questionnaire covers cooperation, working conditions, special management aspects, attitude towards work and the success of the project. The questionnaire was applied to 149 volunteers who for the first time worked on a project managed according to this method and to a control group in a German motor vehicle manufacturing plant. The results show that the employees' interest in the tasks can be increased beyond keeping deadlines, controlling costs and improving quality.
