The Successive Principle in essence

Using the Successive Principle you can handle the uncertainty or contingency in projects, budgets and plans in a controlled, efficient and scientifically based manner. Using a consistent top down procedure you in successive steps clarify the many uncertain factors. In this manner it – besides other valuable benefits - has documented an ability to largely eliminate unplanned budget overruns and delays. This unique capability has been thoroughly documented.

The Successive Principle is based upon an integration of modern statistical theory and psychology with well-known procedures of project management, engineering economy and general management. In fact it allows human intelligence and intuition to play a more natural role as a supplement to the historical knowledge. Among others it applies research which bypasses the many serious pitfalls, which so far has hindered accurate and neutral expert evaluations.
