True Cost of Project Delay

For major capital expenditure projects, every day late equates to thousands of dollars lost. In fact, for an average size project, even a 10 percent overrun can lead to a $5 million hit to project profitability. Extrapolate this out to the average 20 percent to 30 percent delay that most projects report and you are looking at a significant loss—one that impacts your company’s bottom line.

In this white paper, we explore the true cost of project delay, from profitability to company reputation, and arm you with the solutions you need to avoid and overcome overruns.
