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

The Sustainable Engineer, Dr. Sanja Boskovic is not a typical engineer.  Raised in Yugoslavia and educated in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sarajevo, Sanja was one of the few women practicing in engineering in her country.  But that was just the beginning.  She had an amazing journey through the Bosnian war, family life, graduate school, fighting cancer and finally obtaining successful career as Associate Dean at ATC - BCIT.  For the last years she has been involved in FAST Project- Facilitating Access to Skilled Trades.  She holds PhD in Mechanical Engineering and PhD in Educational Technology Program.

Sanja was Department Head and the lead virtual classroom Thermodynamics and Applied Mechanics Faculty member for BCIT’s Power Engineering innovative distance education methodologies.  She launches successful on-site programs and ensure successful completion for all students.  She has been pivotal in establishing quality instruction for different industrial clients.

She was also the D2L co-administrator for Power Engineering projects and support instructors during multiple internal and industry specific projects.  She teached Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Fluid Mechanics.  She was the 2011 recipient of the BCIT Alumni Association Excellence in Teaching Award.

The following are significant personal contributions during her career including research, innovation, and education:

  • In her professional carrier as an educator, she has managed to incorporate new environmental technology in every class, either participating in the research or bringing the new technology to the classroom and her students
  • She conducted the study on the Supercritical Water Oxidation System estimating and modelling heat transfer coefficient
  • She participated in developing and patenting the construction of impact separator, measuring velocity profiles, estimating separator efficiency in Fluidized Bed Boilers
  • She gave the substantial contribution to heat transfer and Sulphur caption in  Pressurized Fluidized Bed Boilers
  • In her earlier career, she was involved in Mathematical Modeling of Parachute as well as 2D Mathematical Modeling for Fluid Flow around Rocket
