White Paper: Overview of initial findings from a one year on-going survey conducted by PCI Global, an international Project Management training and consulting company.
The survey consists of fourteen questions rating all aspects of participating company's corporate project effectiveness. It has been administered to over 100 participants more than 80% of whom are project managers or team members–the groups who bear the brunt of their organizations' effectiveness. Readers will take and review each question revealing startling details about how effective their project management office really is.
PCI's initial findings suggest the greatest impact or predictor of project success is whether the senior management–knowingly or unknowingly–support, ignore or actually obstruct project progress. This may explain the high failure rates and costs reported elsewhere. The study also reports on project manager's complaints and recommendations to improve overall performance.
