Improving the performance of initiatives
Are you involved in project governance? Does your organisation need to lift its project delivery performance? If you answered yes, then here's your chance to do something about it!
We believe the rate of project failure is unacceptably high across all industries - as many as 90% of high complexity projects fail. Addressing this alarming failure rate, this unique international research initiative being conducted in 2012 will analyse which organisational governance practices create the highest project performance. It is an opportunity to benchmark your organisation’s project practices and compare your level of performance against other organisations within and across industries.
As our thanks for your organisation participating in this survey, you will receive an overview of the practices that matter the most for the types of projects that you do. In addition you will receive an organisation-specific benchmark analysis that provides comparative data across a number of dimensions including complexity, performance and governance mechanisms. This will provide more context and clarity to help shape these improvement opportunities.
The survey is being conducted in two parts, each of which will take around 20 minutes, so no more than 40 minutes of your time is required in total. Your data will be aggregated to provide industry level comparative data, and none of your individual data will be available outside your organisation.
Addressing high project failure levels is fundamental to the credibility of the project management industry. There are no easy answers, but we do know that cracking this issue will require the support of the whole industry. This research initiative is an important step in that direction - please get involved and make a difference. Start the survey HERE.
After the survey concludes in May we will be in contact with you as research results are assessed and made available.
All your survey data will be de-identified then sent to our research partners at the University of Technology, Sydney, and the University of Newcastle for further analysis.
Your survey data will be aggregated to provide industry level comparative information – none of your individual data will be available outside your organisation.
Your individual data may be used by Helmsman International only within your own organisation for developmental purpose and advice on project strategy and governance. Helmsman International will not make this individual level data available outside your organisation.
This research initiative is conducted in partnership with the University of Technology Sydney, the University of Newcastle (Australia), APM Group, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd, the International College of Complex Project Management and the Australian Government Research Council (ARC grant ID 2008000664).
