  • 1.  Participation in a research study_ Carnegie Mellon University

    Posted 11-09-2020 09:05 AM

    My name is Lipika Swarup and I'm a PhD candidate at Carnegie Mellon University. I'm conducting a voluntary research study titled, Exploring the Role of Project Priority on the Application of Project Delivery Practices in a Group of Multiple Projects. The primary aim of this study is to examine the role of project delivery characteristics in triggering inter-project dependencies in a Group of Multiple Projects (GrMP).

    In this pursuit I would like to collect data from multiple industries on project delivery attributes. In particular, I'm looking for project managers who are responsible for more than 1 project. Participation is voluntary and will be in the form of a structured interview. A copy of interview questions is attached. The duration of the interview will be approximately 60 minutes depending upon the number of projects managed. All the information collected will be kept confidential. The participant must be 18 years of age or older, residing and working in the USA.  There is no compensation for participating

    I would be happy to discuss further and share the questionnaire prior to participation so if it interest you I would really appreciate your contacting me at lswarup@... and/or via phone at 419-819-5854.

    Hi Lipika.
    Suggest you join PMI.org

    As a student, you may still be eligible for a discount on the fee.

    Once a member, you now have planet-wide access to women and men in practice,
    public and private sectors, education, etc.

    Also,  visit PMI local sections to connect with other professionals.

    Then learn the names of the firms doing different types of projects/programs . . .

    Stay Healthy!
