Abstract

The authors propose ten critical success factors for projects, break them down into strategic and tactical subgroups, and place that model in a project-life-cycle framework. They discuss what problems are likely to occur if a project is well formulated strategically but mishandled tactically, or well executed but poorly conceived. It offers some pragmatic advice about strategic and tactical project management.
