Despite all of This

The Success Rate of Projects

Is Still Under 30%

Why is That?


✔ 70% of all projects fail.

✔ 50% of projects around the world don’t finish on time or on budget.


A Gartner survey shows that the project failure rate is higher with a large budget.


The failure rate of large projects with budgets exceeding US$1 million was found to be almost 50% higher than for projects with budgets below $350,000. The most frequently mentioned causes of project failure are Unclear objectives,lack of executive sponsor,scope creep,poor planning,unrealistic expectations, limited resources,poor communications,lack of transperancy, lack of risk management and not paying attention to project early warning signs.


PM360 Consulting has consulted and delivered projects across a variety of industry sectors – While project management methods and frameworks have matured over time, the demands have increased and so too has project failure rates, estimated by industry experts across all industry sectors to now be at 70%. (PWC, KPMG,GARTNER,4PM,STANDISH REPORTS,FLYVBJERG). 



It doesn’t matter whether you use Agile, Waterfall, Hybrid or other methods – there are certain best practices that are common to all successful projects and certain poor practices common to all failed projects.

Project Management Workshops


Instead of the traditional approach to scoping and planning a project – through endless meetings – brainstorming sessions – workshops – review cycles – waiting time on sign off by key stakeholders. Alternatively, we can concentrate all those activities into a one-day focused workshop. The big idea here is that it’s possible to complete projects much more quickly than we do at the moment. By treating each project day as being precious and irreplaceable and you get far more productivity from that day – at the same time avoiding working long hours, burnout and death march projects.



If continuous and sustainable innovation is to occur, then innovation leadership and project management must be married together and with a clear understanding of each other’s roles. Innovation defines what we would like to do and project management determines if it can be done. The marriage also may require that both parties learn new skills and create a corporate culture that supports idea management practices (Harold Kerzner 2019). Executives and project managers have to show leadership in bringing together all the disparate aspects of theory, reality, vision, process, finances, adding value and benefits to create successful outcomes.



Every project is important and every project has risk. Every hour and every euro are the keys to each successful project. Making good decisions that take account of real-world uncertainties can provide a margin of safety and profit. Failing to identify or predict the risks on projects can make or break any company. A project risk analysis and management plan can help avoid any serious issues that manifest on your projects. The PSI is a measurement technique you can take at any point in a project’s lifecycle, and it tells you how likely or not the project is to succeed.  Experience shows that projects are successful when the same nine things are closely observed – the project goal, the project plan (change control, proper estimates, duration and effort) the leader, the availability of people, the opportunity, the risk, the management style of the project manager, the way the project is tracked and reported.



Turn your organizations project management capabilities into a competitive advantage. Whether you are in charge of a team, a department or at enterprise, leadership level, leadership skills are absolutely essential. to sustaining profitable business change. Executive Project Leadership calls for clear communication about goals, responsibility, performance, change management, strategic thinking, expectations and feedback. Our project leadership training offers training for all levels of experience from the aspiring leader to the executive at the c-suite level.



Project Sponsor is highly desirable but not always likely. We advise on  the importance of sponsorship and how to achieve it. Executive sponsors are responsible for initiating, ensuring, approving, and establishing the vision, governance, and value/ benefits realization for the project. Successful executive sponsors build project sponsor capabilities through the ARC Model and 10 actions roadmap.



These workshops are delivered onsite or offsite.
