Project HEADWAY: Scheduling: What Comes First?
This presentation is supporting material for this video.
A lot of project management is wrapped up in the idea of scheduling. Many project management software packages put the management of schedule front and center; for some, it's all they really actually provide support for managing. Project management courses emphasize the ideas of managing the critical path, building Gantt charts and analyzing PERT networks. Much stress is created about project schedules, milestones, dependencies and deadlines.
Building an effective, realistic and manageable project schedule takes effort and work. This webinar provides insights into what should happen in developing a project schedule. What are the steps involved in thinking through projects in order to be able to effectively schedule it, and what are the strategies that contribute to an effective timeline? Mark Mullaly provides insights into the activities necessary for scheduling success.
