44 questions structure across 4 categories and 15 areas to quickly assess the performance of your Project Engineering management. They enable to identify strengths and improvement opportunities based on high level best practices but capturing perception across the organisation.
Areas of diagnosis carefully designed to shine a light on the lifecycle of project engineering, from customer bid to project delivery.
Both normative questions with specific criteria and questions about personal opinions to get a balance between objective evluation and subjective perception.

Specific analyses when used for evaluation
A balance between objective and subjective assessments
The evaluation includes a mix of normative questions with specific and verifiable criteria, and opinion research questions.
It is a balance between objective evaluations and participants' perceptions or comments that allows to: better contextualize qualitative comments through relative evaluations,measure the degree of consensus among the different participants,understand the reasons or collect different opinions or ideas on strengths, weaknesses, challenges, levers for progress...
The best practices are accessible directly after purchase. In case of usage to evaluate the practices the following steps apply
