The Strassbourg Cathedral was the highest building of the world between 1647 and 1874. It is a good example of European project management. Aims: “Build a cathedral with two towers”. Deliverables: “Working cathedral in 1647 with two towers”. Risk analysis (usually not a prominent part in EU grants): “We might not have sufficient funding to complete the second tower. In this case, we will exhibit the cathedral as a local attraction.” If you can’t fix it, feature it.
