Tips and tools from PM expert Shivshanker Shenoy
If you asked any seasoned project manager about the most challenging part of project management, most likely the answer would be "managing the constraints." Or something close enough to that. According to Shivshanker Shenoy, author of pmexamsmartnotes.com, a major part of your project management effort goes into managing constraints.

Because any one constraint can impact an entire project, Shenoy says, good PMs must know how to spot the 6 project constraints and how to deal with each.

The 6 Constraints of a Project The Classic Constraint Triangle This is one of the best ways to understand how each constraint affects the others. Constraints are indeed interrelated, with strain on one affecting one or more of the others, as seen in this classic constraint triangle: The Classic Constraint Triangle For example, if you expand the scope of the project, it will inevitably increase cost and time and may affect the quality of the deliverable. How Project Constraints are Interrelated All of the six constraints influence each other in that any one getting affected impacts one or more of the rest. For example… If necessary resources are not available, time to deliver will increase. This may also increase project cost, because alternate resources, if available, may be more expensive than planned.

  7. 7. How Project Constraints are Interrelated All of the six constraints influence each other in that any one getting affected impacts one or more of the rest. For example… If a QA team finds that the quality of a deliverable is going bad, more resources may be required. This increases the cost—for additional resources—and effort to fix the faulty deliverable. This will also increase the time to deliver.
  8. 8. How Project Constraints are Interrelated All of the six constraints influence each other in that any one getting affected impacts one or more of the rest. For example… If scope creep happens on the project, it will result in increased time, cost, resources, and potentially reduced quality. And thus increased risk on delivery.
  9. 9. An Art and a Science According to Shenoy, managing six constraints is as much of an art as a science. They will test the mettle of the project manager. But with the knowledge of PMBOK® processes and some support from your organization (PMO), he says, managing these constraints should be a challenge that you enjoy.
