PROJECT MANAGEMENT ASSESSMENTS (PMAs): AN EMPIRICAL STUDY

Rajenlall Siriram

Abstract


The objectives of this research are to: a) compare project management assessments (PMAs) from four firms across four industry sectors (75 PMAs are evaluated using known statistical techniques); b) validate the results through an expert panel; c) apply Pearson’s correlation analysis to find links in the PMA constructs and see how these links relate to the overall project result; and d) identify areas for further research. Three hypotheses are tested, and reveal differences and similarities in project management practices. The results provide interesting opportunities for researchers and for project management practitioners. Finally, a discussion, the limitations of the study, and suggestions for further research are presented.
