Are Your Most Critical Projects Set Up to Succeed?

Project sponsors and project leaders are often afraid to discuss project concerns until it is too late. With up to 50% of projects failing to meet expectations, the chances are high that at least one of your most critical projects will not succeed.

At a time when every investment dollar must be spent wisely, have you done all it takes to ensure that your project is not the 5,000 pound gorilla in the room?

If you cannot answer yes to all of the following questions, chances are you should take a look under the covers to help get your project managers and supervisors back on track.

  • Is your project on time and on budget while delivering the quality results that you expect?
  • Are agreed-upon project success metrics and project risks being regularly monitored and communicated with all key stakeholders?
  • Does the project have the right resources, talent and sponsorship to succeed?
  • Is the change management process working effectively?
  • Would you consider the project team a high performing team?
  • Is the project schedule realistic and inclusive of areas out of the project's control?
If you can confidently answer yes to the above questions, you are most likely in a good position. If you are unsure, our project assessment and diagnostic is for you.

As one of our clients recently said, "spending a little time and a little money can save you a lot of time, a lot of pain, and a lot of money."
