PPM Benchmarking Report 2019

Good project management drives organisations, governments and societies forward and has a huge impact on the economy. But what are the common issues faced by project managers, and how can they actively overcome these? What will be the greatest opportunities going forward and how can these be nurtured?

We delve into all of this in our third instalment of our PPM benchmarking survey series. This report offers valuable market insight into the status of project and programme management, so you can understand how your organisation compares, and tangible improvements you can make.

This report covers the issues around communication, the impact of automation, what constitutes a successful PPM function, the value of specialism, agility and the importance of professional development.
