We Get Projects Done! Better, Stronger, Faster…

Where I work, our Mission Statement is “We Get Projects Done”.  The implication is one of speed, in that the project gets finished in a timely matter.  For a long time we relied on gut feel for the speed of the project completion. We have now developed an equation to quantify the velocity (or time for completion) of a project. Estimating the project velocity can give the project team a fair estimate of the days it will take to complete the project based just on the project budget. There are many factors that can alter a project’s schedule, weather, regulatory demands, client changes, etc.  So this tool was not designed to be anything but a rough estimate of the potential time needed based solely on the budget. EQUATION: Project Velocity (days) = Budget (in dollars) +1737.3 / 173.65 For example, a $10,000 project would be expected to be completed in
