Student research

APM is keen to support all students at all levels regarding their research into the management of projects.

Our research department encourages students to submit their surveys and would like to see the project management community becoming involved by completing the surveys, if applicable, and answering questions which will assist students in their studies.

Your input will help to develop the knowledge base of project management and drive the profession forward. Please see the Promote your research section below on how to upload your survey.

Disclaimer: Please note that whilst APM are keen to advertise these research opportunities it is the responsibility of each student to follow their University's ethical guidelines.

  • Critically evaluate how project managers perceive their listening skills and the steps they have taken to enhance them.
  • Understand how project managers perceive the value and effectiveness of coaching and coach training in improving their listening skills.
  • Identify and analyse different coaching approaches that enhance listening skills.

Target audience  Project management professionals including - project managers, delivery managers, scrum masters
