SMPS Foundation: Annual Owners Survey

January 24, 2020

Last Call to Share Our Owners Survey

A lot has changed in the last few weeks. And while we may find ourselves in some unchartered territory, we still need your help. Over the last year, we’ve developed an annual owners survey to gain insights into the key factors end users/owners consider when selecting their A/E/C partners.

The data from this survey could help your firm win more work and/or retain existing clients. And that’s why we’re reaching out. Would you consider sending this survey to your clients (end users/owners) today? At the bottom of this message, you’ll find some text that you can send to your clients along with the survey link. And, this gives you a reason to reach out and touch base with your clients to see how they’re doing.

Designed to take less than 10 minutes, this short survey allows participants to remain anonymous while providing valuable information. We’ll be closing the survey in a couple of weeks and want to gather as many perspectives as possible.

Once we’ve captured the data, Dr. John Hill, clinical associate professor – Kelley School of Business, Indiana University, will help us put together a comprehensive analysis of the results.

Thank you in advance for your help in this SMPS Foundation effort!


Dear First Name:

I am a member of SMPS and our research foundation is seeking information from end users/owners like you regarding how you select your A/E/C partners. Your input is vital to understanding this issue and improving project outcomes. Would you please take a few minutes to complete this short survey developed by the SMPS Foundation? Findings will be used to help me, my colleagues, and our firms to exceed your expectations. At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to provide your contact information if you would like to receive a complimentary copy of the corresponding research report once it’s completed. Thank you for participating in this SMPS Foundation research project.
