Abstract Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to describe a doctoral research study, including a summary of key literature review topics, the application of an action research methodology, key research findings and potential areas of future research. Design/methodology/approach - Research reported in this paper was based upon a series of five cycles of action research. Findings - An Outcome Profile¿ template can be used to guide project stakeholders through the process of identifying, defining and aligning intangible project outcomes with tangible project outputs. Practical implications - The research study will advance general management and project management research and practice by providing organisations with an improved template and method for linking project stakeholders' outcomes and benefits-based perspective of project success with the more traditional project management outputs-based perspective of project success. The research study, in itself provides a "how-to" guide. Originality/value - This paper alerts practitioners and academics to this recent research work to improve the definition of intangible project outcomes; to better determine what value a given project is expected to deliver.
