Research brief:

The purpose of my proposed study is to explore the perceptions about organizational
project management maturity on competitive advantages. The data collection process will
involve answering a series of 20 Likert-type survey questions. Some additional data that will be
collected will include the number of years employed in the project management consultancy
industry, your name, contact number, mailing and email addresses. The purpose for the
collection of the personal data is that you are entitled to withdraw from the study at anytime
including after the data is collected and a method of identification will be required should you
wish to withdraw from the study. The survey should take no more than 20 minutes of your time.

While the results may be published, your name, identity, and any identifiable response data
will remain confidential and all materials will be kept under lock and key with the researcher and
destroyed after three years. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and you may
opt out of the study at any time. The first 130 valid responses collected will be eligible to
receive a Westfield gift card to the value of $30.
