Project Transition Into the Operational Activities

If you have achieved project support, and you had a good project leader who managed the project through to delivery that's great.
But often times the acceptance of the intended change is only achieved when the project has become part of the operational way of 'doing business'.
The most successful projects are those where the transition into the operational activities of the business has been taken up and owned by the people who receive it.

Project Transition and Project Success

The first level of success of a project - delivery of fit for purpose products on time and within budget - is only useful to the business to the extent it also achieves three other levels of project success:
1. USER ACCEPTANCE - people use it to support their day to day work.
2. BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT - the product improves efficiency and makes a return on the investment made in its development.
3. STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE - use of the products gives the organization an edge against its competitors.
Project managers can only directly achieve the first level of success. The other levels are achieved by good design and implementation - aspects within the control of the project manager but whose effects will not be achieved during the life of the project.
