Project Management Success

This dimension assesses whether the project management team delivered the project successfully in accordance with the project management plan.

The focus here is primarily on time and cost in addition to any other compliance requirements. In other words, did we deliver the project in accordance with the organizational project management standards? Did we deliver it per the established performance metrics?

The client (internal or external) works with the project management team and project management office or department to determine this success.

We measure success on this dimension in comparison to the project management plan, and the measurement is performed during project close.

Note: since we can perform success measurement on dimensions 1 and 2 during or prior to the project close phase, we include the results as a part of the close out report.
