Our Mission

Projecting Success helps organisations to improve their portfolio, programme and project (P3) productivity and competitiveness by identifying, analysing, challenging and improving lessons identified through the course of P3 delivery. By combining industry leading toolsets and methodologies with a unique dataset of over 10,000 lessons, we provide a capability to transform how lessons are prioritised, managed and exploited.

By correlating these lessons with risk, cost and project performance data we will develop the capability to predict future P3 performance, helping organisations to challenge bias and inform decision making.

We have big dreams and are driven by Our ultimate objective is to develop this capability as part of an AI toolset to help leadership to make evidence based decisions, help to manage complexity and drive successful outcomes.

Our Goals

  • To be internationally recognised as the thought leader on P3 lessons with a reputation for pushing the boundaries of knowledge on how the management of lessons can influence P3 delivery performance.
  • To collate, analyse and model an industry leading dataset of lessons, underpinned by the latest in data analytical capabilities. Where possible we will extend this dataset to identify and model important correlations between key P3 parameters such as risk, issues, schedule and financial envelope.
  • To utilise this dataset to provide tailored analysis and expert advice to companies seeking to secure P3 delivery improvements that were otherwise out of reach. We will help them to use the knowledge from past P3 delivery to improve the future.
  • To facilitate the identification and codification of good practice via tools, tips, guidance and practical knowledge and where possible, share this across the community.
  • To be regarded by our clients as an honest broker, seeking to pool knowledge, data and insights for the benefit of the collective. Our clients will have absolute trust that we will protect and segment any commercially sensitive information that they have shared with us.
  • To transform lessons learned from a box ticking exercise to a methodology that adds demonstrable value to the bottom line.
  • To be proud of what we do and the positive impact that we have.

ISO27001: Our ISMS Policy

It is the policy of Projecting Success to maintain an information management system designed to meet the requirements of ISO 27001 in pursuit of its primary objectives, the purpose and the context of the organisation.

It is the policy of Projecting Success:

> make the details of our policy known to all other interested parties including external where appropriate and determine the need for communication and by what methods relevant to the business management system.

> comply with all legal requirements, codes of practice and all other requirements applicable to our activities; therefore, as a company, we are committed to satisfy applicable requirements related to information security and the continual improvement of the ISMS.

> train all employees on how to use their own devices, how to make sure the data they are handling is kept secure and any other requirements to enable these objectives to be met;

> ensure that all employees are made aware of their individual obligations in respect of this information security policy;

> maintain a management system that will achieve these objectives and seek continual improvement in the effectiveness and performance of our management system based on “risk”.

This information security policy provides a framework for setting, monitoring, reviewing and achieving our objectives, programmes and targets.

To ensure the company maintains its awareness for continuous improvement, the business management system is regularly reviewed by “Top Management” to ensure it remains appropriate and suitable to our business. The Business Management System is subject to both internal and external annual audits.

Projecting Success was born out of the frustration that lessons are very rarely learned in project delivery and things need to change.
