It has been exciting times since the initial approval of the project by the Australian government! While the first few days of the start-up of the project were hectic as usual, the work gradually returned to a normal day-to-day rhythm. As from the beginning, Jacob, Mark, and Emily were feeling quite confident that the project was going to be a success. To make sure that they would be able to deal with unexpected events, it was agreed that there would be a ten-weekly reporting cycle: every ten weeks, both the progress and the costs for each of the work packages were to be reported. This information, combined with their approved project plan and risk analyses, should be enough for informed actions if the project looked like it was running into the danger zone.
