Key findings

  • The type of projects New Zealand organisations are currently focusing on include growth and efficiency initiatives, and refreshing key infrastructure.
  • There has been a significant increase in project activity in the past two years across all sectors of the economy.
  • However failure rates are also increasing – with survey results showing that only one-third of projects are delivering the desired outcome.
  • The average project spend reported by our respondents is over $15m p.a.
  • These results represent a dramatic waste of resources in NZ businesses.
  • Certain practices correlate to project management success.
  • Only a minority of our respondents are consistently using these practices to deliver results.
  • Reported success rates vary widely across different industries, with organisations in the IT sector reporting better results.
