The cost-influence curve holds fast. Early, effective assurance and identification of key decisions can mitigate cost and schedule overruns. Once in detail engineering and construction, it is difficult, but not impossible, to recover from a runaway train. Fewer options remain on the table, emotions run high, finger-pointing and blame is prevalent. In such circumstances, an impartial and objective third-party perspective is invaluable, if only to provide triage and hold the course.
