This study explores the relationship between project management practices, control appraisals and dispositional coping strategies used by project managers when dealing with stressful situations. Seventy-one project managers from a global sample participated by completing a web-based questionnaire. Results support the hypotheses that project managers apply more Active Coping and Planning strategies when dealing with stressful situations and that the level of maturity of the organisational practices is related to an increased use of Planning coping strategies. Findings and limitations are discussed.
