When looking for the right project management case study to follow as a guide or outline for your upcoming deliverable, many factors must be considered. The one factor that must be considered above all others is the economic conditions of the business sector your deliverable will be marketed to. Then matching this up to a project that has been a success in the past under the same conditions in the past is possible.
This is what is so difficult about conducting a proper project management case study, the economic conditions are always changing which will have a large impact on the success or failure of your deliverable. If you product is overpriced or not of sufficient quality to met the demand of the current market conditions, then the project could fail.
It is not always possible to find an exact project management case study to follow, so modifications will need to be done. This is sometimes necessary since the same thing being successful twice is rare. It could be a simple as the color of your deliverable. Avocado green and burnt orange were very popular in the 1960’s, but no one can ever conceive them being the preferred colors again. This is a simple change that can make the difference in the visual appeal of your deliverable.
The availability of raw materials and their costs is another consideration that will affect the project management case study and how well they can be adjusted to the modern business climate. New and better materials are being used all the time. What you need to be careful of is the reasons the old materials were used in the first place. Their lifespan, durability, costs and favorable attitude of the target audience all must be looked and placed into the equation of whether it will contribute to the project or cause it to be a pitfall.
The right project management case study with the correct modifications is what can make or break your project. Consider all the different possibilities before making your decisions. These options can best be explored in a feasibility study before the project goes into its planning phase for the best possible results.
