I do not know about a standard existence. Project Management efforts are 20%-25% of total project effort. But the assumption on this is that you really are performing project management.

Agree with Sergio, we consider 20% time for project management of total efforts.Some times tough it can go upto 30-35% based on hours invested and reported in timesheet.

Thanks All for your valuable replies
