Your Choice - Project Success measured by 'inputs' or 'outputs'?

Your Choice - Project Success measured by 'inputs' or 'outputs'? | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
What constitutes ‘success’ with projects (and programs) seems to depend on where you’re standing. If you are standing within the project the orthodox answer revolves around “On time, on budget and to specification.” These measures relate to controllable inputs – time, money and specification.

Whereas for years project success has been measured in terms of how its inputs have been managed, the true measure of success if how well its outputs have been delivered. (For those who want to argue that projects don’t deliver business outcomes or benefits – see our earlier article, “Your Choice – Program inputs v outputs.) As a business executive I want my desired and (hopefully) specified outcomes and benefits delivered. The inputs – time, cost and quality – determine the net value of my outcomes and benefits but being ‘on time/on budget’ is not my primary objective – it is more a measure of delivery efficiency.

Claude Emond's insight:

Tells a good story of a disastrous change management approach and explains why it failed. Alas, this story is a universal one and I still do not understand why most people «managing» changes still insist on doing the same mistakes over and over again. You just cannot decide for anybody when, how and how much they will change; they will just fight you back !...as you will do yourself if someone tries this «change recipe» on you, right ?
