Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Dear Fellows:

I am a doctoral student of the Graduate School of Business and Public Management, Information and Decision Support Systems/Project Management, The George Washington University. I am requesting your participation in my Doctoral research study that is designed to test the role of Project Management Software in achieving project success (e.g., Microsoft Project, Primavera Project Planner-P3e, and Artemis Project Management). Your participation is completely voluntary and The George Washington University will keep your responses completely confidential. No individual responses will be released within your organization or used for purposes other than for this research study. Each completed survey will be coded for future reference.

Purpose: To better understand the current trend in using project management software packages, their impact on performance, the degree of fit between their functions and tasks characteristics, and the relationship between computer self-efficacy and use of this type of software.

The Methodology: I have designated a tested and a short on-line survey. You have been selected among limited and professionals to participate in this scholarly research. Your reply, therefore, will weigh considerably toward the studys results and findings.

The Promise of the Study: The results of this study will be of particular interest to the project management professionals like yourself who seek to use information technology to support their performance and enhance their productivity. The study will help professionals to evaluate the impact of PM software on project success, assess the type of software that provides a higher fit between work requirements and systems features, and demonstrate the role of users skills and organizational support on the acceptance of this key software.

Completing the Survey: For your convenience, I have established an active web site with exciting features for you to complete the survey. Please go to:

Thank you for responding by September 30th . If you are interested in the results of the study, please let me know and I will send you a summary report when the study is completed.

I would go further than Bernard did, to state that if you are using PP to solicit respondents to your survey, you must undertake to publish your results. If you can, fantastic. If you cannot do so, then please explain why.

Please let us know.
