  Success Factors

Every project presents unique challenges but there are some common factors that contribute to success:

Knowledgeable Team Members and Limited Development Team Size The right number of people with the right skills and the time. Includes project managers, subject matter experts, and end-user representatives. The fewer people you have with requisite skills, the more control you have.
Clear Roles, Responsibilities and Accountabilities Define roles and expectations. Put someone in charge. Identify the decision-making process - when you need to be involved and when you don't.
Structured Development Process The establishment and the use of a structured development process, including clear role definitions, steps, quality control points, and evaluation criteria.
Standards Establishing, communicating, building commitment to, and enforcing standards provides control.
Understanding and Consciously Making Trade-Offs

Trade-offs include:

  • Power vs. simplicity
  • Structure vs. freedom
  • Productivity vs. creativity
Project Scope and Complexity Big failures result from biting off more than you can chew. Limiting the project's size and complexity from a perspective of structure, content, or learning objectives can dramatically increase control.
Realistic Expectations A project is doomed if oversold on outcome, cost, schedule, resource effectiveness, ease of implementation, etc. When all players involved have reality-based expectations, there are few disappointments.

Baffled by what colors to use in your multimedia program? If the program incorporates a creative theme, take a cue from the colors it suggests.
