Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

There is an excellent article in Gary Heerkens' Generating Value column in this month's PM Network. The opening paragraph reads:

"Which is better: a project that runs on time and budget and meets its objective, or a project that runs late and overbudget but overachieves on cost savings that have a "change of life" impact?"

For me this topic is SO on point! Every project is an investment, and the value we get out of the investment, all else being equal, is THE key metric.

If you're a PMI member, have a read.

For whatever reason the link I posted doesn't seem to work. The article is titled "Beyond the Triple Constraint" and the URL is:

http://www.pmi.org/learning/pm-network/2014/thinking-beyond-triple-const...

You have to be a PMI member to access it.
