I am thrilled to announce ModernAnalyst has published my article on Achieving Business Value – check it out and pass it on. I look forward to your comments on the ModernAnalyst site or here.
Business value is a new indicator for project success. Huh? You may be wondering what ever happened to the good ole scope, schedule, and budget. They are still there and measured, but what the 2012 trends have been pointing to is that a project completed within scope, schedule, and budget and not be successful. The opposite is also true.

I just ran across this excellent supporting video on Twitter.
Tim Banfield, APM, Project Managers should define project success “in their own terms”
I recently cross-posted a poll in a couple of different locations. The majority of responses came from this LinkedIn poll. The biggest value of the poll is in the comments. They are worth a good read. I will be writing an article based on the information collected and my thoughts. Here are the raw results in the meantime.
A few notes:
- Many commented that they did not like having to select a single role, that it is the team’s responsibility to ensure project value.
- The wording of the poll was questioned. I agree! A better question would have been “Who is responsible for ensuring the project delivers business value?”
- In a different context, the use of “business owner” was questioned. In the article I will be referring to this role as the Customer/SME.
Here is a preview of what is to come in the article.
Thank you for your participation and comments. Keep them coming!
