Project Success Sliders are a way for key project stakeholders or a product owner to convey their expectations to the team. By default there are six sliders, each of which reflects some dimension by which agile project success can be determined—for example, delivery of all planned features, quality, meeting an agreed upon schedule.
Each project success slider starts at a value of three along a continuum from one to five. The product owner or key stakeholders then moves sliders up or down to reflect the appropriate mix of factors in determining the success of the project. Stakeholders are prevented from simply moving all sliders to five by a rule that states that every movement up must be offset by a corresponding move down.
You can edit the text for each project success slider as well as add or remove sliders using the buttons in the tool.
Project success sliders were first described in the book Radical Project Management by Rob Thomsett.
