About this session
In order to address the nature of the project success, it is important to establish what it is that is to be observed. There are many different definitions to a “project success”. For the purpose of this presentation, the definition of a project’s success by Turner (1992), this is often quoted in project management literature, will be used.
In my 17 years successful leadership practice, I used the correlation between the Turner’s definition of the project success and the well-known Tinto’s definition of the team members “stakeholders” success. Both these approaches have a common denominator – clearly defined goal with the common outcome-success.
It is clear that any project is obtaining new knowledge, so any team member is a lifelong learning stakeholder. This presentation connects the persistence model for the project/team members’ success using the following successful projects as examples:
- Implementation simulation technology for the purpose of an effective and efficient operation
- Using available communication platforms for the purpose of decreasing the operation costs
- Developing Thermoelectric generators in order to maintain the sustainable operation
