Project Success Definition - Executive Workshop

In this half day workshop I will guide you and your executive team through the process of defining success for your business critical technology project through the use of my proven Project Success Model ™.

Every project has multiple success criteria related to business results, product/service results, and project delivery results (cost, schedule, scope, and quality).

Project success is determined by how many of your success criteria are satisfied, and how well.

So in order to define success and failure of your project you should;

1) Define all the criteria relevant to your project. 
2) Define how you will measure them.
3) Define when you will measure them.

That is where this workshop will help you.

Client Outcome

I have done many of these workshops as part of my client engagements as well as with startups I have invested in.

Clients have seen the following results:

> A clear vision and success criteria for their key project
> A common understanding of the goals and scope of their project
> Some realized that they should invest more money and time in a project
> Some realized that they should not do a planned project
> Some realized that they should stop an existing project
> Some realized that they should re-scope an existing project
> Some realized that they try to solve the wrong problem

All of them got a very valuable tool (and the understanding of how to use it) for other projects.


I will come to your office. Ideally you and the rest of the team are there as well.

We will need a block of 4 hours for the workshop. For example 8:00 - 12:00 or 13:00 - 17:00.

If you want to save on the travel costs I can deliver this workshop online as well, but you will miss out on the team building effect this workshop can have. Especially if you combine it with lunch or dinner with all participants.


A Project Success Definition workshop can usually be initiated within 2-3 weeks, depending on the time of year.


CHF/USD/EUR 5000,- excluding VAT and business class travel costs.

Note: some clients combine this workshop with the Project Complexity Reduction workshop and make a full day experience out of it. You will get a 20% discount on both workshops if you do so.
