    PROJECT MANAGER CONFIDENCE & RISK AWARENESS - A DOCTORAL STUDY

    August 12

    6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

    Register Now

    Today’s business environments require companies to introduce new and innovative products, and companies are increasingly turning to the project management discipline for successful product launches. Yet, according to PMI, only 60% of projects succeed in reaching stated project goals. The project manager has the vital role of identifying and managing project risk in order to improve the likelihood of project success. Building on a 2015 study that found project manager overconfidence affects expectations of project success and the ability to accurately assess project risk, this doctoral study contributes to the professional discussion by examining the relationship between levels of confidence and levels of risk assessment during project planning. The population of study was experienced project managers in the US, of which 64% held PMP certifications. The presenter also will share her lessons learned in conducting a doctoral study, writing a dissertation and overcoming challenges encountered while working fulltime.

Davis has been a strong customer advocate and project management proponent during her 30-year career spanning marketing research, product marketing, project management and leadership positions.
