2010 Project Management Survey Report
July 6, 2010

With the economic challenges that architecture, engineering, (A/E) & environmental consulting firms have faced in recent years, effective project management skills remain a crucial element to business success. However, according to ZweigWhite’s 2010 Project Management Survey, only 51% of project managers report that they received any job-specific training before being promoted to the position of project manager. Moreover, less than a third of firms reported that they always provide project management training to new project managers.

ZweigWhite’s Project Management Survey of A/E & Environmental Consulting Firms explores the one topic that every firm in this industry could benefit from learning more about. Effective project management can make the difference between mediocre projects and successful ones. This report provides data on issues ranging from project administration, budgets, and schedules to PM training, responsibilities, and compensation. The report breaks down the survey results by firm type, staff size, region of headquarters, growth rate, and client base so that firms may make meaningful comparisons. Principal and project managers alike can use this report to assess their own firm’s project management and to find ways to improve it.
