The author has hit the nail on the head by saying that "... the ingredients are the resources, and the environment is the organisation, these ... are certainly not standardised from project to project". This explains why standardized methodologies have limited use in the actual delivery of most projects.

At the same time, project owners grappling with the challenges caused by the non-standard nature of resources and organization in the AS-IS scenario tend to lean on methodologies to forcibly bring about their standardization during the implementation and in the TO-BE scenario.
