Assumptions and Constraints in Project Management

In project management, we make assumptions and constraints always limit us. They are also a part of our lives.

For example, suppose you plan to go shopping at a mall that takes one hour to reach by car.

You assumed that you would leave your home at around 6:00 pm and reach the mall by 7:00 pm.

This was your assumption. What about the constraints?

In the given example, you can think of two. The first constraint is money. If you have 500 USD in your hand, you cannot shop for more than this amount. The second constraint is the mall’s closing time; let us say it is at 10:30 pm. This means you cannot continue your shopping after that.
