- This movie is about avoiding lateness…by monitoring progress from the start so that…you can make corrections as early as possible.…Think back to the Commonwealth Games…in India a few years ago.…They realized only with a week to go,…suddenly they realized that they weren't gonna…make it after all.…Of course they did make it and the ceremony was fantastic…and the games went really well.…But at what cost because there was a massive expensive panic…to get everything ready because they only realized…at the last minute they had this problem.…
