Grounds rules:

3. Systems Engineering (SE) implementation - Do you need an SE approach within your project.
4. Scope Creep - To what extreme should you go to keep your customers/sponsors happy.
5. Program Management Maturity of the organization - is it worth the pursuit.
6. Should Earned Value Management (EVM) be implemented - do the rigors justify the benefit.
