Project Success

Posted by chiefworker on 20 August 2009

In the domain of Project Management, it is important to reflect on what is meant by project success. An article on Gantthead says technically a project can be successful if the answers to the following questions is a YES: Has the project satisfied the business requirements of the primary stakeholders?
