Knol: Analysis of Project Success Criteria and Success Factors

Dimitrios Litsikakis has posted a knol on project success criteria.  You can go there and read it.  You can also edit it of you wish. The essay is broem into two parts.  the first section is on success criteria and the second is on  success factors.

Here is the headline list of success factors;
  • The PM,
  • the team,
  • the nature of the project itself,
  • the performing organization and
  • the external environment.
If that list is the case, then one of your risk assessment activities is to check the health of each of these dimensions and plan to put as much as is required into the weaker areas.


  1. What about communication? That always comes up at Lessons Learned meetings as it can always be improved.

  2. Darren

    Could you plug that in under one of those parent domains?


    team capability - their professionals skils, performaning organsiation's maturity, etc.

    What do you think?
