14 January 2018 – Southampton, UK – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library on the subject of project success factors. The new resource is titled “Factors in Project Success” and is a 2014 report prepared by BMG Research for APM in the UK.

Research aim was to refine a framework which identified the “Conditions for Project Success” and that provided a baseline evaluation of the current state of relevant project, programme, and portfolio activity. With inputs from a literature review, depth interviews with senior project professionals and educators, and the deliberations of APM and its partners, a framework of project success factors had been developed. The framework had 12 main success factors, each with a small group of contributory or subsidiary success factors. This framework was used as the basis of an on-line survey of 862 project professionals. Based on results of the survey, APM’s project success framework was refined.

To access this report, go to the hot topics section of the library at, scroll down and click on “Project Success Factors”. Must be registered and logged in as Free Trial, Professional or Scholar member to access.
