Project Management Constraints: A Value-Driven Perspective
Let’s take a fresh look at managing the triple constraints of a project: Time, Scope, Cost. These constraints are sometimes depicted as the iron triangle.
The premise behind this model is that the constraints are not mutually exclusive. Changing one constraint will invariably affect the others.
For example, if scope is increased the time and/or cost to deliver will increase. Conversely, if scope is decreased the time and/or cost to deliver will decrease. But rather than look at these constraints as immovable objects, we can turn the model upside down and use them to drive value.
There are two primary approaches to managing constraints: Plan-driven and Value-driven:
- Plan-driven: Scope is fixed. “How much time and budget will it take to deliver this scope?”
While not always the case, the Plan-driven approach is more aligned with Waterfall delivery, whereas the Value-driven approach is more conducive to Agile delivery.
In an environment where resources are limited, the Value-driven approach makes a lot of sense.
