1      Project Delivery Template

Describe here what the project is, by way of an introduction. Outline briefly what this report contains e.g. “This document is the final report for (project name) and incorporates all amendments, scope changes and updates to the original project plan arising from the lessons learned. It also includes a post project analysis of the success criteria compared to expectations. It provides an overview of the project using plain and un-ambiguous terms, such that it can be used as a reference for stakeholders of future projects of a similar nature.  It outlines the elements necessary to produce the product of the project.”


1.1    Project Initiation

Project Initiation kicks off the Project Life Cycle and leads the way to gain approval to begin the planning phase. Initiation starts the project by defining its objectives, scope, purpose, resource requirements and deliverables to be produced. Describe in this section a brief account of the current status that the project is replacing or complimenting (if any) and what benefits the project will bring. For example BPPM created this template to contribute to achieving more sucessful projects. Projects are normally undertaken to solve a particular issue such as "Why Projects Fail"

      Unachievable Goals                        Limited Market Research

      Improper Budgeting                       Immeasurable Benefits

      Scope Creep                                   Poorly Defined Roles

      Lack of Management Support       Lack of User Involvement

      Poor Project Planning                   Weak Business Case

      Incomplete Requirements             etc            

BPPM developed this roadmap to guide you through the process for completing successful projects.

1.1.2      Success Framework

“This stage commences officially following Project Charter Approval.  The preparatory work for this stage is done while drawing up the charter for approval.     Select Project Resources


The business requirements are the specifications that describe the functions that the product is expected to provide. The identification and attainment of Project Resources is the first order of business meeting those requirements. Resource requirements are unique to every project but generally require a mix of internal and external Human, Capital and Financial Resources.  Outline here or in an appendix the selection process for resources e.g. project team, contractors, request for proposal, and business case for funding. You may wish to outline the timeframe of contracts as some resources may be coming on to the project earlier than others.     Project outputs

The product objectives and the project management objectives can be combined under the heading of Project outputs. The product objectives are:


The project Management objectives are:

● Meet stakeholder needs  ●Deliver within Time-frame  ● Operate within budget

etc     Critical Success Factors

(Example) The Critical Success Factors are:

● Clear objectives                  etc            

                                     Success Criteria

The criteria as set out in the table below have been drawn up by the stakeholders to measure the success of the project based on the project outputs.
