Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the key elements of a successful project that, in turn, lead to a successful product. The research strategy used for this investigation will be in-depth interviews. These interviews will be conducted with three project management practitioners. Results supported the contention that leadership is paramount in achieving success. The results of this research also led to the conclusion that the following key elements of project failures; lack of senior sponsorship, poor leadership, uncertain scope and lack of adequate planning. The practice of factoring in customers to the project design and review appears from the qualitative research to be an emerging practice that has not always been a standard part of the project methodology.
