A method to predict a troubled project to avoid financial losses. Though there are many ways of predicting the problems encountered during the project life cycle and at the end of a project, there are no known models that can predict a troubled project or an anticipated troubled project. This Initial Delivery Index (IDI) is a predictive model and tool that can be used effectively during the bid stage to predict future Project Management Risk (PMR) scores with a high degree of confidence.
