First principles: the building blocks that help us gain fresh insights

First principles thinking gives us the power to return to absolute fundamentals and then ask questions, breaking down every situation into its component parts.

By examining each part forensically, things are often revealed that aren’t at all obvious from a conventional viewpoint. This allows opportunities to be identified and acted upon.

Following first-principles thinking has led us to develop more accurate and consistent cost and schedule estimating. It’s an evolving process that sees us constantly fine-tuning our systems to keep them, and our clients, at the very forefront of cost and schedule estimating.
