  • Mapping the success dimensions of the infrastructure projects in Germany

    Ahmed Elsayed Masoud Elbaz Konrad Spang

    Chapter from the book: International Project Management Association, . 2018. International Project Management Association Research Conference 2017.


    Megaprojects and infrastructure projects are historically associated to cost overruns, time delays, and often fail to achieve the expected values and revenues. In order to bridge this gap between project stakeholder expectations and project outcomes this research attempts to map the success dimensions for infrastructure projects in Germany and provide a wider understanding of project success. However, the definition of project success varies from stakeholder to stakeholder. This research claims that a successful project should be a multiwin project, and provide a win-chance to each participating stakeholder. Therefore, the research presents project success as a multidimensional framework, including technical and managerial aspects as well as economic and strategic targets. This will provide a suitable success framework, so the success of infrastructure projects can be evaluated with focus on project success definitions from the project’s own point of view.
