Projects come in all ranges of complexity. Some take years to complete while some only take hours. Regardless of the type of project, there are 3 important elements of a successful project that must be considered.

1. Project Plan

First, the goal of the project needs to be established. The first step is to define what the project is trying to achieve. The goal needs to be measurable – It needs to be something that can be reviewed at specific points throughout the project delivery. Projects require liaison between various stakeholders so there needs to be opportunity to review mutually agreed goals and establish specific requirements of the project.

2. Resources

Time, money and people are in huge demand throughout a project. Budgets and timelines need to be established prior to the project launch in order to ensure everyone has the proper guidelines to follow. It’s also crucial to a project’s success that resources are allocated appropriately meaning, hours and availability for each team member are properly tracked.

3. Communication

People don’t like change. It’s vital to the project’s success to communicate with everyone involved what the benefits of the project are. Getting everyone on board early and ensuring all involved parties have a clear understanding of how the project will be valuable, will help overcome any potential hesitation to adopting the changes down the road.

Of course, there are many other elements of a project. Planning, communication and proper resourcing, however, are fundamental aspects. Proper evaluation of each of these three elements prior to a project launch will help ensure that the project delivery is successful.
