Overview of the webinar

This webinar is about scheduling and how to structure a project schedule that works and ensures the accomplishment of the project’s objectives.

Participants will be walked through the scheduling process from start to finish in language that will clearly describe those scheduling tasks that must be accomplished to build a solid project schedule from the point of creating the WBS to the actual execution of the project and monitoring and controlling project performance.

Scheduling compression and optimization techniques will be discussed and applied to the examples used to explain the scheduling process.

This webinar is one in a series of webinars that detail all of the critical aspects of project management.  This webinar will discuss project scheduling, why it is so important to project success, and how that scheduling process is executed.

The role of project management unfortunately lands in the laps of those least prepared to take on the task.  These people work hard, are well-meaning, and most importantly smart.  But nothing is worse than being handed the management of a project without the skills to execute it successfully.  Most accidental project managers open an Excel spreadsheet and that serves as the project schedule. Bad move!

Why should you attend?

Projects are one-time but very complex undertakings.  Building a detailed and well-crafted schedule is crucial to completing projects on time and on budget.  Scheduling allows management to identify, optimize and effectively apply the tradeoffs between the elements of the triple constraint – time, cost, and quality/scope. 

Project performance is reported against those elements or baselines iteratively across the life of the project allowing the project manager to exercise effective project control.  Without a good schedule, that iterative process is ineffective potentially affecting project performance.  You have to plan and you have to schedule if you want to avoid those awkward embarrassing discussions with stakeholders and senior management as to why the project is not tracking to plan or worse yet, is failing miserably.

This webinar is the first step in getting there.
