Know Why the Project Was Initiated

Find out why a project was started.

Some reasons could be different to just business as usual, and these may affect the priority on time, cost, or quality

  • Was it internal business reasons (business process improvement)?
  • Is your organisation using the project as a demonstration of its capability? To show off and make itself known.
  • Is the project a way to break into a new market (low or no profit may be expected because it will be used as a learning and development exercise).
