- M1) Costs-leadtimes tradeoff

- A4) Coherent partners selection

- I2) Tendering

The tool should be one common language called PMP, project management process among all stakeholders. There are seven steps to do it such as open, select, do, implement, produce, sell and close. Each stage gate require specific validation process before move to next. Let me continue next for the steps if anyone needs interests..
