Factors affecting project management success

In third series article on project successes and failures, Alan Stretton discusses factors affecting level 1 in his model

14 February 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – According to the introduction to Alan Stretton’s latest series article, “This is the third article of a series on project successes and failures. The first two articles (Stretton 2014j, 2015a) looked at levels and criteria for project successes/ failures, at success/ failure rates, and causes of project failures. There was a paucity of data available on these topics, and no agreed criteria for establishing project success/failure. These articles concluded that there was an evident need to establish and agree on success and failure criteria for projects; to develop comprehensive success/failure data covering all significant project types and project management application areas; and a need to develop much more comprehensive and validated data on causes of project failures.”
