Discussion one:

Explain in your own words the relationship between each element of the triple constraint of project management. Determine whether or not it is important to understand the triple constraint in order to be an efficient project manager. Justify your response. The triple constraint determines the balance of the project’s scope, schedule and budget. When they are “balanced”, meaning as one is increased, the other two are proportionately increased to match, the MOV can be achieved. If the scope increased (i.e., new, complex requirements are added), but the schedule and budget do not, there will be less of a change of meeting the MOV. An increase in scope will require more time, so the schedule will need to be increased as well. But, increasing those will require additional budget, as there will be more time and resources needed, which cost money.
