Project management statistics you can't ignore

First of all, as always, a little bit of theory.

Project management represents the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques of project activities to meet the expectations and requirements of the stakeholders. The effects achieved through the application of project management are reflected in significant time and financial savings.

When it comes to statistics, there are some very interesting useful data: 

  • Only 58% of organizations fully understand the value of project management;
  • Only 23% of organizations use standardized project management practices;
  • 7% do not use any standardized practice;
  • 87% of the top management say they fully understand the importance of project management practices;
  • On the other hand, 33% of projects fail due to lack of PM participation (Source: PMI);
  • 32% of organizations are satisfied with the level of maturity of PM (Source: Wellington);
  • Most organizations report that PM had the greatest impact on team communication – as many as 52%, 44% said that the quality of the final product had improved, while 38% said that customer satisfaction had improved (Source: Capterra).

Continuous PM training development is evident in as many as 83% of high-performance organizations. A very important fact is that, despite the high level of maturity, only 48% of organizations invest in PM training, 15% use unregistered courses, while more than 25% do not invest in any training at all.

To have a project manager in a team means having a person that takes care of employees’ well-being involved in a particular project and who strives to ensure the smooth operation of the team.

A person dedicated to getting the job done on time and a person making and facilitating strategic decisions. Project management education is the first step in defining what your organization needs. 

Of course, you always need a PM!
