Achieving the Unachievable

A case study on aligning a project with stakeholder objectives.


This case study describes how a major capital expenditure project was able to achieve a faster, risk-adjusted and still achievable schedule using a combination of schedule and risk analytics, based on the Acumen S1>S5™ schedule maturity framework built into the Fuse project analysis platform.

Through groundbreaking analytics and reporting techniques, what was originally deemed to be unachievable—a faster, less risky project that would enable a faster-to-market gas production facility, was achieved. The techniques used reduced the original project forecasted duration by almost one year, and in parallel, reduced the forecasted risk exposure, aligning the project to stakeholder expectations and ultimately leading to a successful, timely sanction and approval of funding.

Sally was one year away from her fifth anniversary as a project manager with the company and she could not wait for her celebration!
