•Successful project (or complete success or, simply, success): The project ended
on the planned date, cost and scope. Deviations of these three aspects were small and not significant. The client/user was fully satisfied, because the delivered product is being used and really added value to his work
• Partially successful project (partial or compromised success): The project was
finished and the delivered software is being used. Nevertheless, compromising facts (significant delays and/or budget overruns and/or scope deviations) occurred or the user is partially satisfied because the product was not delivered on time and/or does not have all the expected and required features and/or does not add the expected value to the client’s work.
• Failed project: The project was suspended or the delivered product is not being used because it does not fulfill the user’s expectations, or the delay was so significant that the business lost money. The user/client is severely dissatisfied.
