City leaders are constantly saying “All I need is a number” when discussing a capital project, which causes staff to focus on just that — a number. In almost every case, a quick answer is not the correct number. In this session, examples and case studies prove working from the wrong number creates fiscal problems, project delays and failed projects. Learn how to obtain the correct number with the right team and a good process to ensure you begin with the end in mind — and the correct number!
