How are project managers doing in Australia in 2020?

The 2020 AIPM/KPMG Project Management Survey focuses on answering this question through seeking the thoughts and considerations of those at the coal face of project delivery.

This year, we looked beyond just the on time, on budget, on scope measures and considered elements of organisational project delivery to develop this performance report on project management in Australia. In doing so, we identified what we are doing well and what the areas of improvement and investment are needed to continue to improve the effectiveness of project delivery.

Overall, the picture is positive, and we have observed areas of improvement over the three years in which this survey has been undertaken.

There is still more to do. This year’s report highlights the need for continued investment in developing capabilities to support technologies and arming the next generation of project managers with skills to not only adapt to delivering increasingly complex projects and business demands, but to develop EQ skills alongside this.
