In 2008, SoftServe founded the Project Management Office. Its mission is to expand project management expertise among SoftServe associates, drive sustainable development of this competence, conduct researches identifying the cutting-edge approaches and methodologies, applied and tested on practice. There’s also a Project Management Community inside the company that serves as a platform initiating numerous trainings and conferences for internal and external stakeholders of IT industry, who strive to deepen knowledge in this area.

At large, research demonstrates a wide use of project management approach among Ukrainian companies. IT sector is still holding the leading positions, as it accounts for a 20% share of all respondents. Traditionally, IT companies use the most recent and effective project management technologies. FMCG companies make the second place in the application of this methodology. The manufacturing companies and financial institutions also demonstrated positive dynamics this year.
