”Price, quality, schedule:  You pick two.”  

Contractors say that a customer can’t have all three.  If you want it cheap, it can be done tomorrow with substandard materials.  If you want premium quality done tomorrow, you’re going to pay for overnight shipping and overtime for the 14-hour day.  If you want premium quality on OUR schedule, we’ll select the highest quality materials available and we’ll fit you into our schedule when the building season slows down.

What if we’re not talking about a contractor?  What if you really could have all 3 in a needs-based industry?  How could that be made possible?
