During the proposal
Having clearly defined, specific and measurable success criteria helps you to meet your project goals. A significant part of your proposal phase will be spent developing your initial success criteria. You will refine and add to these across the course of your project as your understanding changes and expertise develops. Success criteria help you:
- measure your progress towards quality product at the end of each day
- set clear, useful tasks each day
- identify required resources for each day
This can be a challenging task and you should seek assistance of an expert mentor or other expert. Good success criteria are SMART. Specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time related.

While Progressing the Project
Success criteria are used during your project progress to set tasks at the beginning of the day and adjust your timeline as you go. You might even improve your success criteria as they change to reflect your progress, impact and product aims. You can use the either the progress booklet and timesheets to assist with task setting at the beginning of each day and always use the task setting flow diagram with the help of a mentor until you have the process memorised. Good task setting consists of:
- what success criteria are we working toward today?
- what tasks do we need to get done to get there?
- who will be responsible for each task?
- what deliverables do we need to set for each person and each task?
