1. Discuss the implications for a project manager of not having any clear prioritisation of objectives in terms of time cost and quality. Explain the benefits and limitations of having clear prioritisation of objectives while project planning.

Due to the delivery time postponed, it made the cost increase 30% overall. Many employees were laid off, factories were shut down. This is the failure case for us. Airbus tries to juggle on everything such as technique, commercial, profit and quality. They wish to minimize the cost and...
