Why You Must Track Project Outcomes

Project outcomes are the terrific results that will be yielded from the completion of a project. So it would be crazy not to track them in the PMO. A post at PM Majik provides us a quick reminder of that, along with some additional thoughts. Notably, project outcomes should be identified during the creation of the business case, to ensure a project has real value. And during the actual project, the project manager should be held responsible for reporting outcomes if they exist; the reason for the “if” is that outcomes are sometimes not realized until a while after the project has finished. In such cases, the project sponsor should delineate an appropriate mechanism for reporting post-project.
