Those who have the redistricting pen don't have a blank slate for drawing the lines.
Obviously, we all seek as much success as time and circumstances will allow and maybe even more than that.
But, just what is project success and can it really be achieved without defined criteria, shared expectations and tangible consensus? Read on to find the answers. What is Project Success? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this questions. The best answer may very well be "it all depends".
Is the project on time? If so, that is success. Is the project within budget? Are the project results as planned and required? But there's more to it.

And it's all because projects involve people - and people bring subjectivity to what otherwise should be a purely objective calculation.
To cope with the quirks of project success, project managers must understand and accept the dualities involved, and work to ensure that "all-inclusive" success criteria are properly defined before work begins.
Stakeholders must be included in this process to ensure shared expectations and acceptance of the key operating premise - that success exists at many levels, and that any single outcome positive or negative may not be globally determinative.
