The Project Triangle


As mentioned earlier, managing a project means balancing resources, and though somewhat interchangeable, the main resources are people, money and time.

It's usually great to get more people.
But people cost money, and it takes time before they are really effective.

It's usually great to get more time.
But that may well increase costs too, and a tight deadline can actually help the team to focus.

It's usually great to get more money.
But fat chance.

Cheap, fast, good.

You can have any two.

A few model years ago the Mustang team motto was Fast, Sexy, Cheap - but that was just the team.
