Procedural Patterns That Ensure Success

Successful complex projects follow a similar pattern. Project initiation is the key to success. This sets the course for the whole project:

  • Has the need for action and urgency been recognized and is it backed?
  • Have all topics been defined? Have the causes and symptoms been understood?
  • Do all members of upper management support the target vision for the project?
  • Have criteria for success been identified? Have precautions been taken against stumbling blocks?
  • Has a leadership coalition been established at the helm?
  • Does the project team have the right experience?
  • Has the role of external support been clarified?
  • Have change processes been prepared?
  • Have plans been communicated within the company?
