The Project Management Benchmark Report 2016

Arras People

The report polled over 2,100 permanent and contract Programme and Project Management professionals during December 2015 and January 2016. The Project Management Benchmark Report (PMBR) 2016 shows how the UK’s economic turbulence is affecting project management practitioners’ earnings, aspirations and professional life.
