Shocking results from a first analysis of 200 Project Success Scans! Part II

As stated in the previous blog I will summarize the missing questions in a second info-graphic.

In this blog we look at the same 200 Project Success Scans and focus on the following questions:

  • Project definition,
  • Project team,
  • Project size,
  • Organizational and technical complexity,
  • Willingness to change, and
  • PMO maturity level.

“Based on 200 reactions of the Project Success Scan it becomes clear that, despite many recommendations, we still think we know better how to run projects.”

See attached info-graphic (to download: PPS (Infographic I + II, 150428) v1.0)

Dia2Also here you see that:

  • We accept to execute projects in 50% of the cases without defined goals and scope and a prioritized list of requirements.
  • Only in 24% of the projects the willingness to change exists in terms of positive or productive energy.
  • The size of our projects is in more than 50% too big and on top of that the organizational and technical complexity is too high.
  • We accept in more than 66% to start with the execution with limited availability of the team.
  • In 75% of the cases we think it’s better to reinvent than to have a centralized PMO to collect, define, maintain and share best practices.

“I still don’t get it.”

If you want to see your own project in a spider diagram compared with the average figures of these 200 projects, please fill in your own Project Success Scan:
