PAGE 2

Projects often fail.

PAGE 3

Excellently developed projects fail.

PAGE 4

Brilliant project managers have projects that fail.

PAGE 5

Failure has many reasons. Failure takes many forms.

PAGE 6

Some reasons: Unclear goals Disagreement about goals Scope is unconstrained (too much, too open) Disagreement on roles (who does what) Inadequate resources/staffing Disagreements, resentments, burn out

PAGE 7

Project failure comes in expected and unexpected forms.

PAGE 8

Collateral damage

PAGE 9

Legacies of damage

PAGE 10

Projects can be completed in ways that hurt individuals, teams, and team dynamics Projects can complete successfully and still create fail in their aftermath by damaging reputations and careers with postproject handling of publication and attribution

PAGE 11

Projects in the UF Libraries rarely fail, in part because we have many supports for developing projects (Mini Grant program; culture of projects for seeking funding). As we look to collaborate ever more frequently on ever more complex projects, we need more tools for creating projects to ensure success for the project and collateral successes. We want loads of positive broader impacts. We can use project charters for improved project success in all respects, and for more success in the process of doing projects.

PAGE 12

Project Charters protect against expected and unexpected reasons and forms of failure.

PAGE 13

We, the Team, create our p roject c harter.

PAGE 14

In our Project Charter, We, the Team, decide, define, and commit to our project. We, the Team, decide, define, and commit to our ways of working as individuals and team members for the course of the project and in relation to the project in the future.

PAGE 15

Project Chartersa.k.a. Project Definition, Project Statement, Science Prenup Clearly states project scope, objectives, participants, stakeholders, and methods Uses: project sponsorship/authorization; resource allocations; communication device; baseline for benchmarking throughout the course of the project, for all project activities methods and team dynamics
