Project Success Indicator

The Project Success Indicator * has three zones – The lower the score the more successful the outcome tends to be:

Win Zone (<12) – projects have a high likelihood of success.

Worry Zone (>12<18) – projects are a worry, although some might just make to achieve success. In general as the score increases success moves further afield.

Woe Zone (>18) – projects are very likely to fail – inbuilt failure.

The three zones: woe, worry, win

Example:
The initial Project Score was 13 (see below) – therefore in the Worry Zone. After the team revision this was changed to 10 – back into the Win Zone.
