Current State of Resource Management in Corporate America

Resource Management Survey

Resource Management is one of the key areas to successful project management and yet most organizations seem to put little process or technology to work in this area.  I am delighted to tell you about a UT student who is doing an internship and conducting a (what I consider to be groundbreaking) study on Resource Management in Corporate America.

Please take a few minutes to participate in her survey!!!

 

Subject: Project Resource Management Survey — Request for Participation

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, and am currently interning with Cognitive Technologies. I am conducting sponsored research in a relatively unstudied field: project resource management. I have worked with project management experts to create a short survey to collect data on the resource management tools and processes organizations currently utilize and to explore resource management challenges organizations face.

I believe the analysis of the data will reveal a strong correlation between organizational and project success and the level of resource management employed. I also will observe how management practices vary by organization size, type, and industry. Finally, I will sort the data by the title of the respondent to analyze any gaps that may exist between the beliefs and expectations of project managers and upper-level executives.

To ensure this much needed research is viable, I will need a large response pool. I am asking for your help in this area. Would you please distribute the link to our survey to your collegues? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Thank you,

  Hook ’em Horns!

This is a survey to determine the impact project resource management has on the overall success of projects. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The survey contains:

  • Basic profile questions about your organization, so that we can determine how practices vary by organization size, type (i.e. public, private, etc.), industry, and how beliefs vary by the title of the respondent.
  • Questions to assess the usage of resource management tools and processes and the existence of any challenges across organizations.
