Secrets of High Performing Projects 13 Projects, Performance & Improvements Our next series of questions looked at the projects that were conducted by the organizations represented in our survey as well as how those projects performed and how that performance was changing over time. 4. Approximately how many large-scale engineering, construction or major equipment manufacturing projects is your organization involved in at any time? There was a healthy distribution across all ranges of options. As expected, the majority of responses was skewed to the low end, but more than half (51.1%) of respondents still reported more than 10 such projects and 11.1% selected our largest option of more than 500 such initiatives. While this type of project cannot usually be started or stopped in a short period of time, we still view these numbers as healthy given the economic challenges of the last year (something we'll explore in more detail later). We also saw a fairly even distribution of these major projects across industries. We might have expected that Construction, Architecture & Engineering companies would report a larger number of such projects but they were only slightly skewed to the higher number of projects (54.2% reported over 10 projects). Geographical region had more of an impact with the Americas skewing to fewer projects. North America had just 44.2% of organizations reporting more than 10 projects while South & Central America had 42.3%. By contrast, Middle East, India & Africa's numbers for the same range was 52.6% and Asia Pacific was 58.9%.
