Projects & budgets

25 May
Although a large part of a PM’s life is spent (so we are told) tracking costs, many projects go over budget, not only that but they carry on! So spending too much is obviously not a real problem. Probably by the time the overspend is obvious, too much has already been spent on the project for it to be canned.
Perhaps the PM’s role is not to control the budget, but to ensure that the overspend is held as low as possible.
