◾How did those factors affect the project?
◾How were those factors overcome?
◾For the projects that succeeded: ◾What were the top three factors that contributed to success?
◾Were those factors real or only perception? Support your assessment with a brief discussion.
3.Post your paper to the course Forum, and compare your success and failure experiences with your peers and instructor.
4.In an online discussion, cover the following areas: ◾What do the projects have in common in terms of characteristics, failures, and successes?
◾Which of those common areas can you trace to specific PMBOK® Guide areas?
