Case Study: Vasa Warship Project

Requirements Experts

The Vasa was a Swedish warship that was built over a period of four years, 1625 – 1628…it sank on its maiden voyage sailing all of 1300 meters before being toppled by a small gust of wind. Sadly, the factors that lead to the Vasa project failure are many of the same factors that challenge the projects of today.

In the 60-minute webinar, we introduce you to the Vasa warship project. We will discuss the actions and decisions made by the Executive Sponsor (Sweden’s King Gustav II) and project management that lead to the project’s ultimate “failure”. We will draw parallels to today’s project challenges and explore what you can do on you own projects to avoid making the same mistakes. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". George Santayana

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the factors that lead to project challenges and failure
  • Learn what you can do during scope and requirements phases of the project so that you can help your project teams navigate the challenges typically encountered on projects and better position your projects for success
