How to Improve your Project Success Rate

The Challenge
When we commit money, materials and time to projects we expect to get a reasonable return on our investment. This simply cannot happen if the projects are not successful. Unfortunately, many of our projects (and especially Information Technology projects) fail to meet all of their objectives or even fail outright, leaving us with investments gone bad. Especially in these troubled economic times there is no room for this kind of financial loss. What can we do to ensure that our project investment pays off?

The Solution
First the good news: it is absolutely true that project success can be the norm in your organization. Even better, the means for doing this is available to your management team today. Proven techniques are available to ensure that every project is a good investment, appropriate resources are committed, the work is properly planned and executed and management is fully informed of accurate status throughout. This management workshop explains how it can be done. It presents specific steps that your organization can take to make its project portfolio a cornerstone of the enterprise.
