So you’re all aware of the 3 legs of project management:
I remember learning the adage that if you change any one of these then there is an impact on the others.
For example, if you “crash” the timeline on a project to finish more quickly, then you either need more money or you need to reduce the scope.
Similarly, if you want to cut costs on the project then you may have to extend the timeline or scale back on the requirements.
Recently, I heard someone says the following:
“We can do anything with enough time and resources.”
And when I thought about this, it’s true enough.
If you provide more money and time for a project then, of course, you can do more in terms of the scope of the project.
Pour enough bucks and time into something and conceptually, we really can do anything.
Technically, we can do the proverbial “anything,” but that’s only if the politics and infighting don’t get in the way of progress. 😉
