Early Detection Prevents Escalation
In the world of projects, it is not what you know but when you know it that really matters. What senior management needs, but rarely has, is a way to easily and instantly recognize changing conditions and risks. Slight but accelerating budget overruns, minor but multiplying issues, or early erosion of scheduled slack are a few of the many common problems in the project life cycle, and all are challenges that can be resolved by timely detection and intervention.
Adeaca PBA™ does all the data mining for you and ensures warning signs are flagged immediately and well before they deteriorate and significantly impact project performance.
