Time: the bright side of the iron triangle
Time is one side of the so-called project management ‘iron triangle’ by which the success of a project is superficially measured. Cost and quality complete the trio. It’s interesting to see time elevated to the same level as the other constraints when it is the most predictable but the least manageable of the three.
Is project management a standard or cultural process?
Does the emergence of an international standard, and the internationalisation of other standards including the dozen or more translations of the PMBOK* Guide mean project management is a standard process across all cultures and societies, or do we need cultural versions of the PMBOK Guide similar to the current industry extensions?
