Are we measuring our project triumphs through a blurred lens? Join me, Mounir Ajam, as we challenge the prevailing norms in project management. With more than three decades of expertise at the helm, I dissect the perplexing reasons why many projects sink despite seemingly calm seas. We're not just discussing the metrics of success; we're redefining them. As we navigate the murky waters of high failure rates and the desperate need for standardized success measures, we tap into the pulse of what makes or breaks a project's outcome—unfiltered client feedback, quantifiable objectives, and the art of aligning anticipated benefits with actual results.

In our latest exploration, I unravel the threads of communication breakdowns and executive support, revealing how they weave a tapestry of project outcomes. We take a critical look at the lack of robust management systems and policies that often lead us astray and ponder the transformative power of diversity within project management. The conversation turns introspective as we consider our own reluctance to revamp flawed procedures and the vital impact of earning executive buy-in. As we close, the stage is set for our next episode, where we'll delve into the role of diversity in building a stronger, more inclusive project management community. So, lend your voice to this vital discourse and arm yourself with the insights needed to steer your projects towards uncharted territories of success.
