The Performance Benchmarks series of reports provide metrics results and key observations from focused benchmarking efforts. Project Management, the first report in this series, details compelling metrics data from 26 organizations that represent diverse group of industries, structures, revenue classes, and project types.

Top performers were interviewed about their individual critical success factors in five key areas:
1. actual cost of projects as a percentage of budgeted costs,
2. percentage of projects completed on budget,
3. percentage of projects completed on time,
4. average time ahead/behind schedule for primary projects, and
5. actual primary project hours as a percentage of budgeted hours.

This report is the first in a new series from APQC with a singular focus on metrics results. The report details project management activities that are relevant across industries, such as office set-up, factors relating to project value and duration, resource leveling, project manager training, and documenting project management processes.

There are more than 120 figures that contain detailed information on both the entire survey populations, as well as READ MORE >
