The Post-Show

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
Following the live broadcast of PMI's Researching the Value of Project Management study, principal investigators Janice Thomas, Ph.D., and Mark Mullaly, PMP, gave their first interview to Ed Andrews, PMI's director, academic and education programs & services. In the interview, the researchers told Dr. Andrews this study provided "clear, compelling evidence of value" that project management gives to organizations.

They also emphasized the importance of the story, with Dr. Thomas saying, "This study was fundamentally necessary because in project management research and practice for the last 20 years we've had a number of small studies, and we have had a great deal of arm-chaired theorizing based on personal experiences or some small examples. But what we needed was a baseline study that looked not at what we thought project management should be in organizations, but what it is in organizations and how organizations use it to create value."
