At the Best Practice Showcase in Sydney, Australia on 6 August 2010, the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) announced the results of a major worldwide research project. The key aim of the research: to analyze the impact of the PRINCE2 project management methodology on project performance.
The research was undertaken collaboratively by the QUT Faculty of Business and the Faculty of Engineering (School of Urban Development), with the key members of the research team as follows:
Richard Sargeant (Chief Investigator)
Professor Caroline Hatcher
Associate Professor Bambang Trigunarsyah
Dr Vaughan Coffey
Dr Judy Kraatz.
Entitled Creating Value in Project Management Using PRINCE2, the study also conducted parallel research on the impact of other contemporary project management frameworks on project performance. Research participants were all project managers with experience of PRINCE2 or other project management frameworks and were drawn from the ICT, construction and transport industries across UK, Europe, the US and Australia.
