In order to deliver an accurate budget which balances between upper management and Lauren I must ensure that the figures provided from uppermanagement cover all of the project variables and in order to ensure that the figures provided from uppermanagement cover all of the project variables I must have Lauren make her estimate more accurate. But, in order to deliver an accurate budget which balances between upper management and Lauren I must also ensure Lauren has all the project details correct and aligned and in order to ensure Lauren has all the project details correct and aligned I must have upper management look back over the figures themselves. I can't both have Lauren make her estimate more accurate and have upper management look back over the figures themselves.
RelationAssumption(s)Injection(s)
D-D'it assumed that the method of approach between the two conflicting bodies is different
it is assmed that the information they detailed between each other is different
both have different views of the project (ie top down and bottom up)
B-Dshe may have overlooked details
may have committed too much importance to various parts of the project that upper management did not, or do not consider important or relevant
if a more accurate estimation is made she can further argue the point with valid detail to upper management and correct the project budget and costing
C-D'their approach may have missed specific details
they may have under estimated the cost due to different focal points
there could have been a breakdown in communication
they could be in 'silo thinking' mode.
A-Bthere will be a continued discrepancy in the estimate between Lauren and upper management
more conflict will arise
more doubt will be cast over the project
project will be delayed
A-Cshe may have missed something in her research
lack of communication
breakdown of communication paths
team breakdown
groupthink
