Are They Really Project ‘Constraints’?

In a short post at the Association for Project Management, Paul Naybour stops and reflects on what we refer to as project “constraints.” Sometimes, it is accurate to describe something as a constraint, but there are many instances where it is also wrong. For instance, an unmovable deadline, like the start of the Olympics, is a legitimate constraint. However, any factor that is not truly set in stone is not a constraint; in many cases, it might just be part of the project success criteria. It is a worthwhile distinction to make, lest we inadvertently pigeonhole our thinking.
