Project management and productivity review
How does project management relate to productivity?
There is recently renewed policy, practice and research interest in the topic of productivity. While the contribution of project management to productivity has often been assumed, evidence about this relationship is rarely examined.
In this systematic review of 146 published studies, we examined the research question, methods and conclusions of previous research into how project, programme and portfolio management contribute to productivity and productivity improvements.
Who is the intended audience?
The main audiences for this study are policy and decision makers, academics with an interest in project management and/or productivity and project professionals.
Who took part in the research?
The study was a systemic literature review so there were no direct participants. There was however, an advisory group made up of practitioners and academics who assisted.
