The Iron Triangle
Success in project management has been traditionally associated with the ability of the project manager to deliver the project within scope, time, and cost. The “iron triangle” is a very popular metaphor pointing out that the project manager is asked to reach a reasonable trade-off among various concurrent, heterogeneous and visible constraints to make the project a success.
Over the years, the project manager is continuously challenged by constraints other than the “measureable” scope, cost, and time. Quality, communication, and interpersonal skills has become more important than keeping the scope, time and cost in line. For example, the ground rules for team behaviours and the internal and external communication needs have changed. Project managers may need to exploit their own prominent assertive or holistic attitudes based on a project, organization and team where the nature of the project and the context at-large may be in conflict.

However, the research,
They either do not meet time and budget goals, do not meet their business objectives, or both.
As a result of this research, they predict that in the future, projects will be aligned with the business strategy within the organization to increase the success rate of their projects. To be able to successfully accomplish this, organizations will need to improve their project management competitiveness.
