The Sociocultural Segment

The sociocultural segment generally includes topics such as women/minorities in the workforce, quality of work life, environmental concerns, and career preferences. For strategic planning for project management, the list would include:

• Customer requirements: Do our customers mandate the hiring of women/minorities on our projects? Do the customers require that our subcontracts go to union shop organizations only?

• Health/safety issues: Does our methodology specify that we do not expect the employees to violate health and safety regulations?

• Overtime: How much overtime are employees expected to perform? This includes both exempt and nonexempt employees.

• Career path: Is project management regarded as a career path position?
