Welcome to this survey enabling data collection for learning from ex-post evaluations
This survey is being conducted by the Infrastructure Design and Management Section of Delft University of Technology and it is distributed within the BouwRegie Netwerk (BRN). The result of this survey will contribute to the research on capturing the experiences gained in the management of infrastructure and construction projects (including real estate & area development). The overarching aim of this survey is to get insight into the profession of project management to further identify the potential opportunities for improvement in various project management areas in all phases of projects with a particular focus on the early project phases (called front end development phase in this survey).
Value for your company
The results of this study can be used by practitioners in order to evaluate their projects. We might also use the result of this survey for cross-industry knowledge sharing. This includes projects in infrastructure and construction sectors outside the BRN as well as projects in process industry. In addition, this research can provide some directions and recommendations for future projects contributing to improved project performance.
