Closing the Gap: The link between project management excellence and long-term success is an Economist Intelligence Unit briefing paper, sponsored by Oracle. The Economist Intelligence Unit conducted the survey and analysis, and wrote the report. The findings and views expressed in the report do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsor.
The report was based on a survey of 213 senior executives and project managers worldwide, desk research, and in-depth interviews with nine executives and project management experts in the fields of architecture, construction and engineering; aerospace and defence; mining and metals; pulp and paper; and utility, oil and gas. The author was Sarah Fister Gale and the editor was Katherine Dorr Abreu. The Economist Intelligence Unit thanks all those who contributed their time and insight to this project. Mike Kenny was responsible for the design.
