Project managers are not the only leaders in projects. Frequently team members take over as temporary leaders, for example, to solve technical issues in areas the project manager is not specialized in. This questions the appropriateness of existing leadership theory and styles for project settings. 

PMI sponsors a study on the process and circumstances that balances leadership in projects between project managers and team members. You are invited to participate and receive a copy of the results.

Please click on the link below to access the survey. Participation will require approximately 15 minutes of your time. In return we offer a summary of the results, if you indicate so through a separate email (more in the questionnaire). Deadline for answering the questionnaire is October 27, 2017.

Participation is voluntarily. Information obtained from you will be held in strict confidence. All data will be anonymized by March 31, 2018. No references will be made to specific individuals or names of organizations in future reports. 

If you like to receive a summary of the results, please send an email to ralf.muller@bi.no.
