Success and failure are highly predictable. Our research at Shelton focuses on the patterns of success and failure. Our diagnostics, the Success Healthchecks are predictive engines with refined algorithms that identify:

  • Risks that cause project failure
  • Risks that jeopardise project success
  • Potential incremental budget variations
  • Governance weaknesses
  • Results that are really being created
  • Proactive actions to ensure your goals are achieved.

Assessing quantitative factors as well as non-quantifiable factors, our dynamic, data centric diagnostics help:

  • Board Members assess governance and risks to business continuity from major projects
  • CEOs, COOs and CFOs assess capacity of project(s) to deliver to strategic vision
  • Sponsors, Steering Committees and Program Managers assess program and project configuration, risk and capacity to deliver promised value for the investment
  • Project Managers proactively assess project and phase risks to results and success
  • Project Team assess project and team dynamics that aid project performance
