Lack of Key Project Deliverables

The following is an excerpt from a book written by Sanjiv Purba and Joseph Zucchero, published by McGraw-Hill/Osborne, 2100 Powell Street, 10th Floor, Emeryville, California 94608 U.S.A. Sanjiv has over 20 years of experience managing large projects and many years engaged in rescuing ailing projects.

"Key project deliverables, sometimes referred to as milestones, are not just what is produced at the end of an initiative, but also interim deliverables that are necessary to ensure a smooth conclusion. A lack of key interim deliverables or end deliverables is a sign of troubles to come. If asking for these is causing chaos, a project rescue is required."

"Subsequent chapters of this book identify some of the interim project deliverables that are required on information technology, strategy, or industry initiatives."
