What makes a Project Successful?


What are the foundations for laying down successful projects? What tasks and activities must be done before, during and after a project to ensure success?

The following traits should be inherent in any wannabe successful project:

  • Clear Objectives – The most successful projects have clearly defined objectives from the outset.
  • A Good Project Plan – A carefully thought-out plan serves two purposes. First, it allows everyone involved to understand and perform their part in the project. It shows who is responsible for what and estimates how much money, people, equipment and time will be required to complete the project. Second, it serves as a monitoring tool, allowing you to take early action if things go wrong.
  • Communication – Your project is a collaborative effort between all of the individuals and organizations involved. You all need to work together to maintain effective and continual communication between the parties.
  • A Controlled Scope
