What is Project Quality?

A good project is usually defined as one which delivers the expected outcomes or objectives:
  • within the TIME allocated
  • on or under the BUDGET allowed, and
  • to an accepted level of Quality
Everyone probably has their own concept of what constitutes a quality project. The objective has to be delivered on time and within budget, it has to meet the specifications, and do so efficiently and effectively. In terms of systems or processes, they need to be easy to understand, easy to use and well documented.

The administration of the project itself needs to be subject to quality processes in order to deliver the appropriate outcomes. This is the area on which we will concentrate.
