The classic "iron triangle" of project management is Better/Cheaper/Sooner, your choice of any two. In software, we are in the unique & enviable position of aiming at a moving target. Because our opinion of what we should build will change so much as we go, we can turn scope into a powerful lever for influencing projects. In addition, *increasing* quality ("Better") reduces cost & time. B/C/S/M provides project funders, sponsors, & users concrete ways to add value to a project without the unpredictable effects of reducing time or budget.
