When the results are ready I will post them too on this blog.
The purpose of this study is to develop a framework to help organisations to improve and embed project management practices in an effective way. While the literature on PM provides some advice, organisations need guidance on what PM improvement initiatives should they concentrate their efforts. A related issue is how to facilitate the embedment of these PM improvement initiatives in a sustained manner.
This survey is divided into the following parts:
- Part A – Key factors for improving project management practices
- Part B – Key factors for embedding project management practices
- Part C – Project management practices
- Part D – Some characteristics of the respondent and respondent’s organisation
All responses will remain confidential and will be reported only in anonymous, summary form in a PhD Thesis and any subsequent research articles.
