What is the benchmark for project success?
Network:1639



I believe that knowing what success will really look like can help the team stay focused and make important decisions throughout the life of the project.

So, in order to be successful, I guess bench-marking should be implemented as a structured, systematic process. What is your opinion?

Delivery on time and within budget for PMI project manager is norm :).
This fact alone is not a mark for project success.
I would measure results in company before and after and make sure that there is improvement.

Benchmarking is for company management and this helps to justify investment.

Defining KPI's will also help to measure achievement.
Thanks Drake, for your feedback.
Do you use dashboards for your KPI reports?

For me success is the stakeholders that are happy and sign off the project. I have said before that a project can effectively fail, as long as the stakeholders are happy and sign off.
If the stakeholders are happy then all is well.
Thanks Sante, for your response.

Meeting stakeholders expectations by delivering right product within given time & budget is project success criteria.
Thanks Alok, for your feedback on this.
It looks like the projects value proposition defines the proposed measures of success.

Thanks for sharing your experience on this, Fernanda.
Totally agree with Fernanda. We actually had problems closing out projects because "done" wasn't clearly defined. In an effort to provide customer service we actually crossed over from project management to operations--great for operations but not so great for the PMO.
