THE COST MODEL OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT Most of the organizations that we visit operate in the Cost Model of project management. This model has several characteristics: ♦ First priority in any improvement effort is on reducing cost or increasing efficiency. ♦ Reducing the cost of a project is considered valuable, regardless of the impact on project cycle time. ♦ Cost numbers and labor utilization are "fudged" to show good reports, especially when the effect is bad for the organization as a whole. " ♦ Improvements in project management, if there are any, that actually affect the bottom line in a tangible way are slow and painful.

Charitable organizations must generate funding, which comes from being successful in how they provide services. The element of cost control that everyone wants to achieve is to not waste funding or investment. However, the first test of whether or not any investment is a waste is the predicted effect on the organization's goal. This is why the Throughput Model offers a better approach. The Throughput Model suggests that the number one focus of any organization should be throughput, which is essential for long-term health.

There are some environments where strict adherence to authority works well. For example, businesses that gain revenue through the military or government agencies are often required to follow strict project delivery guidelines such as "Earned Value" techniques. These businesses are measured and compensated on the Earned Value metrics as a percent of available compensation for a particular project phase. So, if the business achieved 90% of the Earned Value metrics for a project phase, it would receive 90% of the available compensation for that project phase.
