Improving Project Performance With Three Essential Pieces of Information

Summary: A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a one time result. Three pieces of information are key to a successful project. First is a brief, clear description of the intended results of the project. Second is a list of all the entities affected by or interested in the project or its results. Third is a list of the work and resources necessary to bring about the intended result. Using these three pieces of information throughout the project will increase the chances of it successfully achieving its intended results. A sidebar article describes a Webinar to help make your next project a success. An additional article by Stanley Portny, "To Ask or Not to Ask," is available online.
