Projects: Series 1

WHICH WAY TO GO?

We want to take our organisation to a brighter future. We must decide where that is and what is the best way to get there. [Glenariff country park, Northern Ireland]

This first series of programmes examines how organisations come to undertake projects and the considerations they must make in order to decide which projects to do – or not do. Getting this part right plays a crucial role in determining whether an eventual project turns out to be a brilliant and vital success or just a mediocre, partially useful and expensive miscalculation, or – worst of all – a useless, extravagant and humiliating failure.
