Pinned topic 2010 IT Project Success Survey: Chance to win "Reflections on Management"

‏2010-05-08T10:58:48Z |
You are invited to participate in my 2010 IT Project Success survey at The goal of this survey series is to find
out how we define IT project success in practice and how successful our projects
actually are. The survey should take you about 5 minutes to complete, and your privacy will be completely protected.

At the end of the survey you will be given the chance to be entered into a draw
for one of 10 copies of Reflections on Management: How to Manage Your Software
Projects, Your Teams, Your
Boss, and Yourself by Watts Humphrey and William R. Thomas published in April
2010 by Addison Wesley. I'm reading it right now and it's a really great book.

This is an open survey, so the source data (without identifying information to protect your privacy), a summary slide deck, and the
original source questions will be posted at so that others may analyze the data for their own purposes. Data from
previous surveys have been used by university students and professors for their research papers, and hopefully the same will be true of the data from this survey. The results from several other surveys are
already posted there, so please feel free to take advantage of this

Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to fill out this survey.

    I'm going to shut this survey down in a couple of days, so please consider taking a few minutes to fill it out. As I indicated previously, I will share all data (without identifying information) so that everyone can take advantage of this information. Let's work together to find out what's actually going on out there.
