Predictive

No one wants to hear bad news. When projects are challenged, when project metrics are not predictive and when forecasting has stopped the project, the project is on it's way to the OS Phase™...

Somewhere during the recent unparalleled growth of project management and cost engineering disciplines worldwide, one of the most important by-products of project managment and cost engineering professionals has seemed to vanish. The emphasis an dimportance of the predictive element of projects has disappeared. The result is a continuous flow of projects that are experiencing unexpected failures, with some of the failures so significant that they are actually making the news headlines. These projects have entered the phase of the project that is coined as the OS Phase™.
