Take part in a international project management study!

The Group of the European Youth for Change - GEYC is supporting EBS Business School in Wiesbaden, Germany - the organizer of a study on acceptance and use of project management methodologies by individuals involved in projects (e.g. project managers, project team members etc.). The study is also supported by the Project Management Institute (PMI), and PMA-India.

We would like to benefit from your experience and win you as a participant in our study. All collected data will be kept strictly confidential and all reports and publication of the data is only in anonymous and aggregated form.

You can access your personalized online questionnaire by using this link.

In detail, the following questions are addressed:
i) What needs of users are crucial for PM methodology acceptance?
ii) Based on which cognitive considerations do users decide about using a PM methodology?
iii) Which characteristics of a PM methodology influence this decision?
iv) How can users be encouraged to use PM methods as intended by the organization?

As a thank you for your participation, we will provide you exclusively with the results of the study i.e. our findings, conclusions, and recommendations in form of a multiple page write up end of 2011.

This is the first large-scale international study that addresses this issue. To understand the cultural differences project managers / staff from many countries are participating - e.g. U.S.A, India, China, EU-countries, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and if possible further Asian and African countries. Use this chance to get unique insights into the use of PM methodologies in organizations. Additionally, we will conduct a raffle among all participants, and will give away a brand new iPod Nano touch.

You can interrupt answering the survey any time and continue later. Your answers are automatically saved. You will start the questionnaire from the point where you had stopped.

In addition to providing you with the final results report, we also offer an organizational benchmarking. If you have further interest in this topic please contact Kunal Mohan. A presentation providing an overview of the study can be obtained here.

Thank you for your support!
