Recent research interest in project typologies has increased understanding of different project types. Acknowledging project typologies repositions our capacity to interpret reported project success measures. In addition to simply capturing success measures associated with project outputs and outcomes (such as critical success factors), we must now recognise the need to adjust project evaluation methodologies to account for typological differences in inherent project risk. Similarly, the selection of appropriate success measurement methodologies will vary across different project types and affect reported success. This paper aims to make a contribution to PM theory by developing a conceptual framework for identifying components of reported project success that acknowledge this repositioning.
