The survey brought out that the reasons for PCMM certification do not vary significantly across IT companies. The Level of PCMM to which an employee’s organization belonged had a significant impact on his/her perception of factors leading to success of IT projects.

Integrating workforce development with process improvement was ranked as the most important benefit of PCMM implementation.
