Approaches for Project Downsizing
Arthur Rowland
I have recently been tasked to come up with a proposal from the prime contractor (we are subs) that will significantly cut my team's hours. What is the best way to comply with the request without making my team's resources seem irrelevant.

You can have two approaches. This is what I do in such situations.
1. Justify the "value add" you team is doing to the project and try to convince the prime contractor.
2. If the contracor has already decided to cut down the hours of your team, you do not have any option other than deploying the excess team members to some other project.
