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 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.
|1||D-Duration: time line towards implementation – the longer the time frame the greater the need the requirement to keep the project ‘maintained’ and focussed||Initial Project Score||Revised Project Score|
|< 2 Months||1|
|> 8 Months||4|
|2||I1-Integrity: the performance of the team to minimise the timeline (sense of urgency)|
|3||I2-Capability: the capability of the team, its composition to re decision makers, expertise, know how|
|4||C1-Attitude: of the project team members define the receptiveness to change (Can Do Attitude)|
|5||C2-Commitment: the reality of senior management commitment ongoing commitment and the messages they are sending to support|
|Clearly Communicated Need||1||1||1|
|Seem to Want Success||2|
|6||E-Effort: the magnitude of any additional effort required to get things started and/or starting implementation|
|< 10% Additional||1|
|> 40% Additional||4|
