Identify and manage project success

Summary

This half day seminar concentrated on the less tangible aspects of identifying and managing project success. Project success is clearly aligned with delivery to time, cost and quality, but success can sometimes be realised in other ways, and may change over time, or from the individual's perspective. However, it can still be captured, and remains transferable. The seminar set out the criteria by which successful projects have traditionally been judged and then examined how these criteria are aligned on two very different cross-department programmes. Whilst diverse in nature these projects have a number of features in common, particularly as both were implemented in an operational environment. Both were also heavily reliant on human factors and effective systems integration to underpin their successes. The proceedings concluded with the Government's perspective regarding major infrastructure projects.
