Discretionary dependencies

Postby Prembalaji Fri Dec 22, 2017 2:35 pm

How can a Project Manager use his knowledge of Discretionary dependencies on the Project?

1.It helps to determine the optional tasks in a project
2.Discretionary dependencies can be relaxed to fast track a project
3.Discretionary dependencies can be relaxed to crash a project
4.Discretionary dependencies help determine the optional team members on a project
Cheers,
