A project is successfully completed when a project has met it's agreed upon scope within the agreed upon time, cost.
Let us take the case of the iridium project by Motorolla. It met it's scope within the agreed upon time and cost. At the same time, this project did not deliver the business results becuase by the time this project was completed, internet became very popular and most of the functionality iridium project could deliver to the end user, internet delivered at a fraction of the cost. In this case, is the project management of this project successful?
The business case of the project is owned by the project sponsor, who has funded the project, hence in this case the primary responsibility for the project not delivering it's business objective lies with the sponsor. The project management of this project was of good quality, as the project was completed within time, cost and met it's scope. Of course the project manager could have identified it as a business risk and highlighted it during the course of the project. Still the primary responsibility of not meeting the business case lies with the project sponsor.
