Design

Any Project Manager will be faced
with a situation known as the Project
Management Triangle. Like every
other human endeavour, any architectural
or engineering project will
be carried out under various constraints:
traditionally these have
been described as ‘scope’, ‘time’ and
‘cost’. This image of a three-sided
model is appropriate, since changes
to any one side will have unavoidable
consequences the other two.
Naturally, ‘scope’ refers to what needs
to be done to produce the desired result,
‘time’ refers to the the amount of
time available and ‘money’ the budget
that will be devoted to the project.
The centre of this imaginary triangle
is the quality achieved.
The challenge that faces any such
venture is to ensure that all the participants
constantly have the tools
necessary to complete the work in
budget, on time and to the required
standard.
