A Brief Explanation of the Triple Constraint in Project Management - nTask

Time constraints in project management

Each task and process in the project have a scheduled time allocated for their completion.

Steps for managing the schedule of the project development process:

  1. Plan schedule management.
  2. Sequence all of the different activities.
  3. Define all of the activities that will be performed in the project.
  4. Estimate the usage of all of the resources that are going to be used in the project.
  5. Estimate the time durations related to each activity.
  6. Develop a proper schedule after analyzing the first five points.
  7. After creating the schedule, control/manage the schedule to ensure that your project is on track.

Thinking in Systems

It means to be able to break down a big system into its sections and putting it back together. The target is to identify the strong and weak links: how the sections work, don’t work, or could potentially work and applying this knowledge to engineer useful outcomes.

There is no engineering method, so modular systems thinking varies with contexts.

Fundamental Properties of the Engineering Mind-Set
  • The ability to see a structure where there’s nothing apparent.
  • Adeptness at designing under constraints.
  • The capacity to hold alternative ideas in your head and make considered judgments.

The Magic of a Fresh Start

A fresh start allows us to let go of what's happened in the past and just be present for ourselves at the moment. It allows us to learn from our failures and gives us the opportunity to do better, to be better, and to grow past the difficulties.

We are allowed to reinvent ourselves and what ever we may be facing. We can reinvent what we want our lives to be. We can always recommit, and remind ourselves why we are committed to this. This fresh start is available to us in every single moment.

Phone Interviews: A Level Playing Field

In-person interviews tend to focus less on the skills and experience, and more on who is more cordial or great to talk to. It does help build rapport in some cases, but also promotes an invisible bias towards the candidate’s race, gender, class and other factors unrelated to the job performance.

Phone Interviews level the playing field and let both the parties focus on the essential.

Building Rapport During Phone Interviews

A phone interview can also be used to build rapport, but instead of small talk, one can build up on the conversation, avoiding stiff, rehearsed responses to whatever the employer is asking.

If the conversation is genuine, one can easily connect with the employer on a human level.
