2018 Pulse of the Profession Results are in....
The 2018 Pulse of the Profession Report from PMI indicates that many of the trends from past Pulse Reports remain true. Key takeaways are:
- The #1 driver of Project success is an Actively engaged Executive Sponsor
- Organizations which align projects to Strategy perform better than those which do not
- 68% of organizations report using outsourced or contract Project Managers
- On-time and Within-budget projects continue to hover around the 50% mark
- Only 23% of organizations report using standardized project management practices throughout the entire organization
- Nearly 10% of every dollar is wasted on poor project performance
- There is a wide divide in capabilities for Organizations who are Project Champions vs Under-Performers
We are proud to lead the charge supporting our Veterans as they transition into civilian project management careers. Along with our Partners we have developed this Mentoring Program to team Veterans with established Project Management Leaders.
Maybe I've gotten lucky but Erin is amazingly awesome. I believe the biggest success of this program rests on the participants. From the first conversation, my mentor established rapport and expectations for our relationship."
