The State of Project Management Survey Annual Survey is Open


Thank you for all those that participated, we will be publishing the report in early 2018.

The State of Project Management Survey 2018 is an annual piece of research is undertaken by Wellingtone, with contribution from the APM PMO SIG and APM Systems Thinking Group.

Although a number of non-salary focused project management surveys are published each year they tend to be either very US-centric or global in perspective. You can take a look at the 2017 survey here.

Our UK project management industry is highly developed and deserves special attention. The State of Project Management survey asks questions across a number of important topics including; project management maturity, tools & techniques, project success rates and of course PMO maturity.

We invite all our colleagues from across project management industry to participate. Your voice is important.

For your participation, we have some fantastic prizes to give away, these include:

  • £250 of John Lewis vouchers
  • 1 x £100 John Lewis vouchers
  • 3 x FuturePMO 2018 tickets
  • 1 x APM PMO SIG Annual Conference Ticket

Project professionals of all ages, sectors and levels of experience are invited to take part in order to produce a set of results that accurately reflects the current climate in the profession.

All of the data will be analysed and any useful trends and insights will be published in the annual survey. Please see The State of Project Management Annual Survey 2017.

This year we will be sharing ANONYMISED survey data with University College London (UCL) to further PhD and Master Degree level research in project management.  It is important to stress that your name, organisation and contact details WILL NOT be shared with UCL but the anonymised data will be invaluable for this industry-leading research.

By participating in this, you will be contributing to a current piece of research and helping us paint a picture of the project profession in 2018.

The closing date for the survey is Thursday 30th November 2017.

All individual data will be kept strictly confidential. The report will provide valuable summary and trend information.

The survey will take around 10 minutes of your time to complete.

The PMO SIG has been part of the APM since 2010. Our aim is to provide a collaborative open forum for PMO practitioners, and anyone with an interest in the role of PMOs, to get together, share ideas, offer support and advice to the PMO community, and to create valuable practice-oriented knowledge that helps drive the PMO profession forward.

We encourage and facilitate collaborative learning that fully engages the membership and helps them grow their PMO skills and competencies, we will always reach out to other disciplines that collaborate routinely with PMOs to create value. The SIG strives to be an open source of unbiased advice and guidance to those who can benefit from putting PMO practices to work, and have a bias towards action, understanding the latest thinking and quickly digest it into ways that can be shared as digestible knowledge with those we seek to.

APM Systems Thinking SIG
 The APM Systems Thinking SIG was created in 2016 to allow Project Managers to share ideas, promote the practice of systems thinking and share case studies. Complex projects need managerial leaders who understand systems and the benefits that systems thinking can bring. It is a framework for seeing interrelationships rather than things, for seeing patterns rather than static ‘snapshots’. There is substantial evidence that a systems approach adds value by reducing the need for re-planning and rework, and optimising the risk margin, allowing projects to fulfil their objectives both on time, and to budget.
