This project documents a survey of project managers from four diverse companies in the Northwest, ranging from consulting firms to government agencies, to find out how projects are controlled within those companies. Each company's project control system and key areas of good and bad performance are identified. A set of recommendations is given for improvement of each company[s control system. The key issues from the individual companies are compared for similarities, and a list of critical areas of focus for effective project control is developed based on these similarities.


This project is only available to students, staff, and faculty of Portland State University.
