Pulse of the Profession | Capturing the Value of Project Management | 2015

As organizations take a critical look at their operations, our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® research finds that since 2012, the small percentage of organizations that are high performers in project management remains unchanged at 12 percent.

High performers achieve 80+ percent of their projects on time and on budget, meeting original goals. They meet business intent 2.5 times more often than low performers and waste 13 times less money due to poor project performance. Their rigorous approach to project, program and portfolio management improves their ability to implement strategy and creates a competitive advantage.

How can your organization capture the value of project management? PMI’s Pulse of the Profession maps a clear path forward.
