Excerpts from the previous article
Since the beginning of formal project management, projects have been suffering from time overruns, de-synchronization and lack of predictability. Even leaps in technology has not been able to counter this. What could be the reason for this inexplicable trend?
Let us start with the answers to the questions posed in the previous article –
We all know unitary method. If 10 resources can do 10 jobs in 10 days and if 5 turns up, we expect the same 10 jobs to take 20 days. The impact is known and predictable. So why should we worry about facing shortages in project situations? We should always be able to predict the impact and take recovery actions.
All over the world, the incidents of time and cost overruns and lack of synchronization in major projects are continuing unabated. Most think that the primary problem is of visibility and monitoring. And hence, technology seems to be the proverbial silver bullet for all our project woes.
