Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This conceptual paper proposes a value-centred approach to measuring project success. The paper adopts a product-based project definition and a corresponding project lifecycle model. After reviewing briefly the literature, the paper defines the concepts of the net project execution cost (NPEC) and the net product operation value (NPOV). Twelve possible project outcomes are outlined based on values of NPEC and NPOV at project completion compared with their initial estimates. The proposed scheme potentially enables project stakeholders to reach the same project success or failure verdict. It also addresses many issues hitherto encountered in the quest for project success criteria.
