Advanced Tips and Techniques

Realistic project scheduling is a crucial ingredient for project success.
Simply stated, one could argue that any schedule that keeps its stakeholders abreast of the project status in a timely manner and results in an on-time performance is a good schedule. However, planning and scheduling professionals recognize that the components comprising a good schedule go far beyond. It's often difficult to conclude whether it was a good schedule until project completion and by then it's too late.
This recorded webinar will help you learn specific keys that are required for a good plan and schedule. These elements enable timely decisions and steer the project to its successful completion.

This course covers the more advanced aspects of scheduling and scheduling techniques as well as the plans that underlie schedules, and is crucial for any project and constructor, design professional or project manager in today’s complex construction environment.
Listen to this program to learn key practical aspects of schedules and scheduling. This 90-minute program will help you:
- Become familiar with different scheduling methodologies
- CPM with lead-lag factors
- Vertical production scheduling

- And much, much more!
"...More important, however, is that creating a good schedule and producing accurate monthly updates is critical both to successful job completion as well as the ability to recover costs and/or time for project delays. Read the RFP/IFB documents carefully and request clarification for any uncertainties in the specifications that actually end up in each project that you are bidding on." — Paul Levin, PSP
