Alan D Orr in his book, Advanced Project Management, emphasises four key elements required for successful project delivery:

  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Business Case, and
  • Identifying activities with long lead times.

I add a fifth element to Orr’s list: lessons learned from previous projects?

    • but a team that is flexible to change
  • Accountable Assets
    • budget
