Project Management Update from Argentina

A new edition of PM SURVEY.ORG has been recently launched in Argentina as well as in other countries of the region.

PM SURVEY.ORG, http://www.pmsurvey.org/, is one of the major research initiatives in the world on the topic of project management. It has become a reference for professionals, students, universities and organizations that are looking for an overview of how project management practices are being used in organizations around the world and what results have been obtained through their use.

Founded in 2003 in Brazil, at PMI Rio de Janeiro Chapter by the volunteer Americo Pinto, every year the PM SURVEY.ORG has evolved in the number of participating countries and organizations and since 2011 it has been launched in Argentina with the collaboration of the local PMI Chapters.

As we commented in previous editorials, organizations in Argentina have showed an increased awareness in the benefits of formal Project Management practices, and this is reflected in the increasing implementations of Project Management Offices in the region.

An example of this awareness is the selection of the case of the Strategic Project Office of the Argentinian bank Banco Hipotecario S.A. to be included into the book “A Compendium of PMO Case Studies: Reflecting Project Business Management Concepts” published last year. According to Mr. Alberto G. Sirvent, Manager of that PMO, the authors of the book, Dennis L Bolles and Darrel G Hubbard, have stated that “this case study was selected because it was recognized as an enterprise that exhibits excellence and innovation in developing a maturing organizational structure to support effective business management of projects and whose executive management have recognized the business potential of a PMO at a senior management level.”
