The project variables

All projects run into problems and knowing how to mitigate these is key. At any given time a project only has four variables:

  • Time

Extending a deadline, going live with work to be completed after then or delaying launch. Time is often the most effective variable to maintain quality and scope.

  • Cost

If time, quality and scope are issues then more investment is a good solution. Buy more development time and you will reap the rewards.

  • Quality

Usually never something to compromise on, but getting something live and then tweaking it can often have hidden benefits, especially if you have a fixed deadline.

  • Scope

Accepting a reduced scope can often save you money and time, especially if you have a lot of ‘nice to haves’.

Understanding and agreeing these up front is key to a good project.
