Success: When A Change Occurs

Your project is only successful if you can point to a change that has occurred.

A project is a temporary unique endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result. [PMI] A project can also be seen as, “a temporary organization that is created for the purpose of delivering one or more business products according to an agreed business case.” [Prince2] Whatever definition you use, the foundational concept is that when a project is completed, something new has been created.

You will know that your project has been successful when something changes.
