Projects need a wide spectrum of conditions to be successful. Most project managers are aware of a number of basic things a project must have but are often not fully knowledgeable of everything needed to support a project functioning effectively. This seminar addresses the full gamut of project prerequisites necessary to support project success and provides examples of these conditions for different project types. The risks to projects when any of these prerequisites are not in place is discussed and guidance on how to ensure your projects have what is needed for success is a key part of the seminar. A checklist to assess the status of necessary project inputs and conditions during different project phases is included.
