The management triangle is the relationship between three constraints: Time Planned, Time Consumed and Time Difference. Time Planned is an expect amount of working hours allocated to your project. Time Consumed (or Time Spent) is a metric showing how many working hours are spent on doing the project. Time Difference shows the difference between both metrics. The triangle is widely used for scheduling and managing projects, tasks, activities. It will help you create a project plan and break the project down into phases and tasks.
The time triangle is linked to other tools for workforce management. First tool is the time cost quality triangle which shows the dependence between Project Time, Project Cost and Project Quality. Another tool is the time resources money triangle that shows the dependence between Project Time, Project Human Resources, and Project Money.
