APM’s Conditions for Project Success is a piece of independent research that seeks to identify the core factors which lead to the successful delivery of projects, programmes and portfolios.
The research is primarily designed to promote the importance of professional project management to senior project executives and influencers. However, the findings are relevant to anyone with an interest in the successful delivery of projects, programmes or portfolios.
Over 850 project professionals and thought leaders from across the private and public sector were asked to rate their most recent projects and the contributing success factors.
Active risk management
As part of the survey, members were asked to rate recent project success in a survey and gave the success factor described as ‘The project has active risk management and is flexible enough to respond to unforeseen hazards and opportunities’ an average of 6.9 out of 10.
