Since the site supports surveys, why does a PM survey that is also used for education violate the user guidelines? Kiron posts one every Friday. There is no stated purpose, and no debrief on the results. It could be for anything. In fact most of the questions posted directly support someone's professional issues.

Interesting. Thanks for the info Heather.

Assuming you provide sufficient background info and a thought provoking question or two, you could also post it in PMI's LinkedIn Project, Program and Portfolio Management discussion group as there are others who have done this too.

Ahh... I was curious as to the purpose of your surveys and just now after looking... found a blog post. There is no follow-up link between the poll and the later analysis, only the reverse. I was always curious what the point of the polls were, when there is no evidence of analysis. The polls are for the benefit of those who follow your blogs.

All posts here are questions to help people professionally. Every semester, one or more Emery Riddle students request a mentor expressly to provide input for their educational purposes without objection. I'm genuinely perplexed how the user guidelines apply in this situation since I cannot find a logical distinction, and by nature I challenge silly rules.

If I were to advise the original poster, I would tell them that they should have posted the survey without comment as to how the data would be used. That appears very consistent with acceptable site usage. Post multiple questions to populate the survey. Build a network and interact with the posters to increase interest in responding.

Interesting. Thanks for the info Heather.
The key part of Heather's response is "Requesting survey participation". Therefore, simply putting up the poll(s) is not a violation. Asking people to complete the poll is.
I am currently in the same situation as Hassan with my masters. Has anyone any other places that this type of content can be shared?
Thanks,
Cian.
