Project Benefits
If a project is delivered on time and on budget, can it automatically be considered successful? That very much depends on whether it actually delivers the benefits the stakeholders were counting on. 
 
Project evaluation for success
At the end of a project, it is very tempting to move straight onto the next one. It’s finished, it’s done, why dwell on it. But it is important to learn from finished projects whether that’s what went well or what could have gone better. 
 
Everyone would agree that unless something brings a benefit to a company it’s not really worth doing. Unfortunately, this philosophy is not always observed, especially when it comes to projects. Projects need to be aligned with your company strategy otherwise they are a waste of time and money. Here’s why. 
 
If you’ve ever heard of scope creep, you know of the importance to state the scope of a project as clearly as possible. Scope creep is defined as adding unauthorised additional functions or requirements within a project with the end result that the project either does not finish on time or within budget (usually both!).

Poor communication can derail the project at every stage of the project delivery life cycle. From uncertain goals and badly formulated requirements at the beginning of the project, to disenfranchised stakeholders, bad planning and completely missing the outcome of the project.

Is your organisation focusing on the right projects that align with the company strategy and vision? Are you sure your scarce project resources are being deployed in the most effective way? 
 
 
How many times have you or your organisation embarked on a new project and it has failed in the later stages because some essential requirements have come to light that hadn't been captured? 
I previously wrote an article on my website and LinkedIn entitled ‘Be surprised at what you do‘ which is all about understanding what you or your business does in terms of processes and daily activities that are completed without thinking. 
If you have a Project Management Office (PMO) within your organisation then knowing it is performing effectively is key to the business growth.
