Having recently completed a Diploma in Project Management, I wanted to investigate if the theoretical concept of successful project management is practised.
An anonymous survey was sent to project managers (PM) and project team members (PTM) working on engineering projects both in the private and public sector. Some 44 project managers and 31 team members completed the survey. The results were reviewed to determine if the survey participants’ feedback correlated to the academic principles. More interestingly, the PM and PTM results were compared to determine if and where parties disagreed.
