Career Path Opportunities for Project Management Practitioners
The Institute of Project Management and UCC Department of Management and Marketing has been undertaking a benchmarking survey for the last six years to build a detailed picture of the profiles of project management practitioners.
The survey was completed by some 170 respondents and was conducted across four geographical sectors Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick, between November 2009 and March 2010. All of the respondents are engaged in a role that is recognised as a project management discipline. This allows us to build a consistent dataset for cross-reference against the data gathered in previous surveys. One of the aims of the survey is to help us to understand the current situation better.
For example here are some responses to “Career Path Opportunities” for Project managers:
