Here is where Innovation really can take place. Constraints don't hold you back, they unleash innovation and creativity. EX: Haiku, iambic pentameter.

The Triple Constraint

* These three are so inextricably linked that typically only 1 of these can be absolutely fixed. * Changes in one of these almost ALWAYS result in changes to the other 2. * If all 3 are set arbitrarily, the project is almost certain to be doomed. * one of the project manager’s greatest challenges is managing to this triple constraint.
