A survey conducted by the Center for Business Practices (CBP), the research arm of project management consultancy PM Solutions, shows that despite the variety of project management training delivery methods available today, traditional classroom-based training still reigns supreme as the most used by organizations. Survey results revealed that organizations spend 40 percent of their project management training time delivering onsite, classroom-based courses.

The study, "The Value of Project Management Training: A Benchmark of Current Business Practices," polled senior practitioners with knowledge of their organizations' project management practices and business results. This was the first study to provide benchmark data on a wide variety of project management training issues, and was designed to help project management training decision makers - including project office leaders, project directors, human resource mangers and corporate university heads - better understand current practices and trends affecting their project management training investments.

Survey results also show that the majority of organizations (57 percent) outsource their project management training initiatives to private training or consulting companies.
