the dilemma

STABER cost of time to market

The program management dilemma is to always be:

  • on time
  • to spec. and
  • within budget.

Negative consequences are typically seen in lost revenues/margins and budget overruns.

There are many resources (textbooks, good practices, work breakdown structures, project management software packages etc.) out there to deal with these issues.

A robust and therefore recommended approach to manage this dilemma is Critical Chain Project Management devised by Dr. Goldratt and his team.
