Some reasons could be different to just business as usual, and these may affect the priority on time, cost, or quality

- Is your organisation using the project as a demonstration of its capability? To show off and make itself known.
- Is the project a way to break into a new market (low or no profit may be expected because it will be used as a learning and development exercise).
