Closing Thoughts

Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion. — Jack Welch

The Project Success Model™ contains five concepts (or steps). These concepts and the relationship between them can be understood as a reinforcing cascade, with the choices at the top of the cascade setting the context for the choices below, and choices at the bottom influencing and refining the choices above. The steps are:

  1. Define the desired business outcome,
  2. Define the problem,
  3. Define the scope (project completion),
  4. Define project delivery success,
  5. Define product/service success.

As you learn what you should be measuring and what truly matters for your project and business success, it becomes easier to define measurable results. And as it becomes easier to define measurable results it also becomes easier to achieve them.
