Success rate by industry We explored the link between industry and project success. Aviation/Airports was a new entry at Number 1 with Rail/Underground sinking to the bottom this year with just a 40% project success rate across all regions having been in third place last year. Oil & Gas and Mining also showed relatively high levels of success, consistent with our findings from previous years.
People & Skills¬† The survey results showed a clear need for upskilling within the industry with just 17% of respondents believing their teams have all the necessary skills required to perform their functions successfully. There was also an overwhelming majority of respondents that told us ‘Planning’ and ‘data analytics & visualisation’ were the two main focus areas for improvement.

System Integration Integration of systems improves data quality and provides a positive shift in the mindset of teams in how they deal with project data. Overall, 82% of respondents recognised that having integrated systems made a difference to project outcomes, however, less than 10% said their systems were actually ‘fully integrated’.
