Besides that, the reason why we do the literature survey is to substantiating the problems from the previous research which related to what is needed to be known.Other than that, some of the problems in the research paper are not totally solved by the researcher due to the lack of information and sources from the participant.
Project effectiveness depends on multiple dimensions and has many situational issues that demand flexibility in method selection and utilization.
Three of the most important dimensions explored in this study included: organizational structures, cost and schedule management typologies and leadership styles.
Most of the researchers define that the literature review is a collection of summaries of papers or an elaborated annotated bibliography of multiple research manuscripts.
Other than that, a quotation from Levy and Ellis (2006) said that literature survey is “the use of ideas in the literature in order to justify the particular approach to the topic, the selection of methods, and demonstration that this research contributes something new”.
An outline of methods and tools that may best be utilized based on project type and needs was created to better understand potential applications for each method and tool.

A systematic literature review was utilized to collect data on the most common project management methods found to be effective according to the current literature.
As projects are complex and vary greatly it was concluded from the literature that project management effectiveness cannot be measured by a single metric.
The purpose of the literature survey is “to draw on and critique previous studies in an orderly, precise and logical manner” (Coughlan, 2013).
Most of the literature survey is shown the research fits in the existing knowledge that helping the researcher to understand the topic of the survey, the strength and the weaknesses of the research.
