"Knowing your Sponsor" - Questions about "Business Outcome"
Hello,

i am referring to the already existing discussion here:

http://www.projectmanagement.com/discussio...roject-Sponsor-

I have to ask a bunch of questions and to have more transparency and a better overview for your participation i will divide them in several postings.

What is this about?
In short: It is about what questions to ask your sponsor as a project manger in your very first meeting to set a baseline during initiation phase.

In long: please refer to the before mentioned thread fur detailed information.

Here are the questions about "Business Outcome":

==========================================

Business Outcome

Assuming we had completed the project and it were now up and running ...

What would make the project a success for you?

What is the primary payoff you are hoping to receive?
Greater Business Efficiency?
Greater Market Share?
Improved Customer Service?
Increased Revenue?
Short/Long Term Profits?

What methods will you use to quantify your targets?
Reduced Costs?
Return On Investment (ROI?)

What is required to know that these benefits have been achieved?

What are the conditions that would force a project shut down?


=============================================

Please review them and leave your comment, correction, enhancement or addition. Any feedback is highly welcome!

And please lookout for the other sections also; thank you very much in advance.

Every participant will receive the result of this initiative if wanted.

Regards,

Markus

Hello Anupam,

do you want us to add this points to the question about the primary payoff?
What are the success criteria that will indicate customer satisfaction, benefits delivered?

Hello Anupam,

like you may have seen we have already the question "What would make the project a success for you? " in this section.
Do you expect other results as answers to your question? Should this be added or may it be redundant then?
