What this is

A checklist of critical success factors for defining a product, and a worksheet that allows you to:

  1. record project information in each important area,
  2. compare your info to the description of 'well-defined' info,
  3. and record a brief assessment of the existing information for your project.


Why it's useful

The front-end product definition work is critical to the overall success of the project. Edith Wilson of Hewlett Packard created the checklist categories and success criteria for each, based on her study of numerous projects, and what made the difference between successful products and unsuccessful products.


How to use it

Using the Critical Success Factors Checklist as a guide, fill in each item of the worksheet. Assess your project's information against the criteria from the checklist and note where you feel the project information is deficient or missing. Those items should become the basis of high-priority action items for the team's product specification work.
