Question: ability to influence the cost of a project

 Question No : 145


 
 You note that the ability to influence the cost of a project is:


 
 
  Choice 1  Greatest at the early stages of the project 
 
  Choice 2  Greatest at the middle of the project
 
  Choice 3  Greatest at the project closure stage
 
  Choice 4  Constant throughout the project
 
 
  Correct Choice : 1


I thought it is Choice 2.... why is it greatest at the early stages of the project?


Thank you all for the information.

Answer 1 makes more sence since during planning stage you are estimating the cost to develop the budget and hence you have the most impact there.
