If we are to deliver really successful projects we must fully understand what success is, and what organisations intend to achieve through their projects - something more than finishing on time, on budget, and to a specified quality. Clients, their staff, suppliers and customers will all, usually, have different expectations. This interactive event explores the meaning of project success for the client and all these and other stakeholders.

The benefits can only begin to be realised after the project is completed, so when can we know what success is?

Based on workshops developed in conjunction with experienced consultants, and carried out with a range of organisations, this interactive event explores the client’s deeper long term expectations to ensure that success is included and understood as part of the project brief so that every aspect of the project contributes towards the client’s goal.

This will be a highly interactive session and will explore and build on the good and bad experiences of attendees, to ensure that discussions provide plenty of food for thought and ideas to improve the chances of success for both their current and future projects.
