2013 Project Management Benchmark Report

2013 Project Management Benchmark Report

The eighth –  2013 Project Management Benchmark Report from Arras People  In addition to remuneration and rewards across the sectors we also looked at generations in project management; took another look at the subject of PMOs; uncovered recruitment challenges that organisations face and spotlighted the unemployed project practitioners.

Generation Project?
At this stage, we would say that the practitioner group does exhibit a core set of personal and work related values irrespective of their generational cohort, which is worthy of further investigation. These shared values exhibited by the group may help in recruitment; however the practitioners should still be cognisant of the generational impact on their stakeholders.

2012 Project Management Benchmark Report

2012 Project Management Benchmark Report

The seventh –  2012 Project Management Benchmark Report from Arras People  In addition to remuneration and rewards across the sectors we also looked at the latest developments in project management that impact you, the project professional. We also trolled those on the periphery of PPM – trainers, educators, hiring managers and students with practitioner aspirations.

What makes the difference?

Recruiters and practitioners agree that programme and project management experience, specifically the ability to show a track record of delivery is #1 when it comes to candidate selection. Formal education comes in at #5!

2011 Project Management Benchmark Report

2011 Project Management Benchmark Report

The sixth 2011 Project Management Benchmark Report from Arras People once again provided the most comprehensive report available for the project management marketplace in the UK. In addition to remuneration and rewards across the sectors we also looked at the latest developments in project management that impact you, the project professional.

PRINCE2, is it worth it?

Training budgets under further strain in 2011, but PRINCE2 still holds it dominating position as the de-facto standard in the UK.

2010 Project Management Benchmark Report

2010 Project Management Benchmark Report

As the impact on individual practitioners seems to have been so variable the 5th Annual Arras People survey of the UK Project Management Community will give us all a snapshot of how you and your peers fared during 2009 and at the end of the noughties the general mood looking forward into 2010.

Project failure, who is to blame?

The short answer appeared to be “not me”! Programme and Project Management Practitioners highlighted a lack of executive support as the biggest single cause of project failure.

2009 Project Management Benchmark Report

2009 Project Management Benchmark Report

In the 2009 Project Management Benchmark report from Arras People the data confirmed that the vast majority of us are in some way feeling the effects of the credit crunch and the impact of recession on the UK economy. The gloom built steadily during 2008 and its impact started to bite in many sectors of the economy, even though officially we were not in recessionary times until January 2009.

* 38% of respondents expect hard times or contraction over the next year, and 27% expect the market to remain neutral. Only 6.5% expect the market to be buoyant.
* 60% of respondents expect cuts and redundancies in their sectors.
* 27% of employees have noted a decrease in employment opportunities.

2007 Project Management Benchmark Report

2007 Project Management Benchmark Report

We entered 2007 with a Project Management market which is still growing, as is the recognition that “projects exist in all walks of life, and need to be managed” grows. Government speak about Projects, Local Government has many initiatives around achieving deliverables through effective projects, Lord Coe was recently on the radio talking about the Olympics in 2012 in the context of what it is “a big project”. A further example of this could be “the apprentice” where all tasks were defined as “projects” and each task had a declared “project Manager” who had to take responsibility. Tim Campbell, who won the final round because he was the better organiser, strategic thinker and team leader, is now Project Director for Sir Alan Sugar at Amstrad Plc.

2006 Project Management Benchmark Report

2006 Project Management Benchmark Report

The start of a journey – the first Arras People PMBR

We wanted a snapshot of the project management profession and the issues facing it half way through the first decade of the 21st Century. We wanted to find out what had changed since the millennium. We covered market trends, remuneration, and the positioning of PM within a professional context.

Several issues stand out. Against the general increase in salaries and day rates, there is an undoubted desire for “more for less” from employers. There is real competition out there, with consequent downward pressures on rates, and there are winners and losers. And then there is the question of accreditation. A good or bad thing? Read on.
