Davis Home Project: Privacy Fence The Davises recently purchased a new family home in a subdivision. This is a completely new environment for them since they are used to living in the country with room and privacy to spare, and also no neighbors. In order to feel more secluded, they have decided to add a privacy fence around their back yard. The goal of the privacy fence project is to provide the Davis family privacy, but also to clearly define the property line between their yard and the adjoining neighbor’s yard. Mr. Davis is very handy, and generally completes all of the home projects himself with the supervision of the very particular Mrs. Davis. Mr. Davis has also acquired an impressive collection of power and hand tools over the years, so the ones that are needed to complete this project have already been procured. Mr. and Mrs. Davis have created a budget and a timeline for the project, and have agreed to spend no more than $1000. Since Mr. Davis is using some of his vacation days to complete this project, there will be a strict 5-day timeline, starting on Monday, July 6, 2015 and ending on Friday, July 10, 2015. Measure of Project Success and Failure According to Kloppenborg (2015), “Project success is creating deliverables that include all of the agreed-upon features” (p.11). Other measures of success include the customer’s success, the performing organization’s success, the project team’s success, and if the project is completed on time and on budget.
