A tool that measures the effectiveness of software project management can be used to identify strengths and weaknesses, and guide improvement to practices in order to increase the chances of project success. The Software Project Management Effectiveness (PME) Metric is one such tool that has shown promise in this area of software engineering. To discover how promising the metric is, nine software practitioners participated in this research and assisted with measuring projects they recently worked on. A strong correlation between the PME metric and project success was identified. The software practitioners also provided feedback on the usefulness and applicability of the PME metric. Seventy-five percent of the software practitioners stated that they would use the metric on the next project they worked on. This research has found that the PME metric should be considered for use by project managers who continuously want to improve and deliver successful software projects.
