Project & portfolio management is ever-changing, through disruptive technology and evolving processes. What is the current state across industry? What is the future direction? These are the themes we explore in The State of Project Management Report, published annually. Although the report highlights the great successes achieved by some it clearly shows there is much work to be done and importantly, considers what the future might hold. We know most organisations can benefit from improving their PPM maturity and many do not benefit from best practice PPM tools and techniques.

We collate the data, look for themes and share the intelligence with you.

Research and Report Approach

Our annual research publication, The State of Project Management Report provides an in-depth insight into project management both in the UK and internationally. The report considers a number of important topics including; project management maturity, tools & techniques, project success rates and PMO maturity.

Annually we invite colleagues from across industry to participate, and they do, in their hundreds. Participants complete a detailed questionnaire with research data being analysed and published using anonymised data. We share anonymised data with leading universities to aid further academic research. As always we are very grateful to all those that contribute.

We hope The State of Project Management Report provides the catalyst for you to consider how you can increase your project successes and provides a wake-up call to tackle your biggest project & portfolio management challenges. Please feel free to share this report with colleagues and quote the data with suitable referencing. Do contact us if you have any questions.
