Dyslexia in Project Management - Understanding the Experiences of Dyslexic Project Professionals
Synopsis It is thought that 1 in 5 people have dyslexia. However, it is an extremely under researched topic, especially in adults. The aim of the research is to investigate the experiences of dyslexic project professionals and to provide recommendations on how dyslexic project professionals can be better supported by their organisations. The survey will look into topics such as disclosure of diagnosis, experiences after disclosure and workplace reasonable adjustments. The results of the study will contribute towards my BSc Project Management. Please feel free to share the survey within your organisations.
Target audience Individuals who work within the project management profession who have had a formal dyslexia diagnosis or self-identify as being dyslexic
Closing date 14th June 2021
Learning From Project-Related Failures in UK Construction Project-Based Organisations
Synopsis I am a PhD student undertaking some research into “Learning from Project-Related Failures in UK Construction Project-Based Organisations (PBOs)”. Because, projects can experience small or large forms of project-related 'failures', the aim of this project is to find out if (or how) these can help organisational learning for construction-related companies. To get meaningful results, construction professionals and academics are being surveyed to obtain their insights on this.
We would also be grateful if you would forward this on to some of your own relevant contacts who would add value if participating. Thank you in advance for your participation.
Target audience Construction professionals such project managers, designers, engineers, planners and directors.
