Key to a successful project is to deliver the right results. This can be achieved by a three step approach:
- Identify the business objectives to be achieved
- Specify the deliverables necessary
- Manage the link
The project management team should address the connect between the business value to be realised and the deliverables planned. The team must be ready and wiling to change the deliverables andd the plan to meet the desired objectives. The project decisions and deliverables should all be interconnected and should lead to the business obejctives in a recognizable way.
The project manager should discusss this process with the stakeholders whenever there is an opportunity to do so.
