This paper describes the results from two surveys of project managers in New Zealand that asked them various questions about their use of and attitudes towards modelling techniques for supporting the management of software development projects, especially fuzzy logic. Each survey is summarized separately and then some overall conclusions are drawn. The results give some indication of how new modelling techniques, and especially fuzzy logic, can be presented to managers. The positive attitude of many managers towards the use of fuzzy logic can be used within their current software development management practices.
