Abstract:

This case narrates the various stages in the project life cycle for an ambitious project taken up by two governments, UK and France, to create a plane that would break down the barriers of distance by traveling at speeds greater than that of sound.

The case tells how the project sponsors' (UK and France) dream of creating a supersonic passenger plane materialized and the various problems that resulted in huge cost and schedule over runs. This is a typical example of a project that was technologically successful but was a commercial failure.
