Harry Mingail (www.harrymingail.com) contributes great chapter to the book The Keys to Our Success with the title Project Failure Is Always Your Fault – Or is it? (OK, I left the last part out of the title of this post).
In it Harry describes your organization’s Enterprise Environmental Factors and its Organizational Process Assets. They dramatically affect your project, positively as well as negatively.
“Beware the state of these key OPAs and EEFs. Help to change them if needed, and you can. Advancing by even
baby steps enables your success. Sometimes, you can’t change them in time for you to benefit. Under these
circumstances, identify, problem-solve, and adapt to them. Treat each day as a blank page in your project’s diary of accomplishments. Problem-solve external factors to turn your diary into your best possible project performance record.”
