How to make sure that projects run to budget and schedule - and deliver the intended results.
From the Hubble space telescope that was launched with a malfunctioning device that resulted in all the pictures it took being blurred, to the extremely late completion of England's new national soccer stadium at Wembley, history is full of example of projects that damaged organisations because they were late, over budget, failed to deliver what they were meant to, or were complete disasters.
