Forecast Scheduling for Innovators

Oct 11, 2018 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Forecast Scheduling for Innovators shows you how you can forecast your project with just the project schedule, even without advanced techniques like Earned Value, Critical Chain or Agile. The author invented the 'Principle of Dynamic Scheduling' that states: If one thing changes in your project, you should have to change only a single cell in your project schedule to have the scheduling engine recalculate the rest of the schedule. Using this principle, you minimize your effort to maintain the schedule during the busy execution phase of the project. Dynamic Scheduling led to the ‘Principle of Forecast Scheduling’: If your project schedule is set up as a valid, dynamic, robust model of the project, it will continuously forecast your project. All best practices described in this webinar stem from these two principles. By following them, you will take your scheduling to the next level. PMs will have an add-in (called Forecast Scheduling App) to realize these principles in their project schedules. PMOs will have a framework, checklist and app to analyze all project schedules. Key learning points: - What is your aim: Model the Time, Workload and/or Cost dimension of your project? - The principle of Dynamic Scheduling and Forecast scheduling demonstrated in real-life project schedules - What benefits to expect from Dynamic Scheduling and Forecast scheduling?

Backlogs and Burndowns: An Alternative to Gantt Charts for Planning Product Development Projects

by Kelly Weyrauch
March 20, 2018 | 60:33 | Views: 9,967 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.54 / 5

Gantt Charts are a fine mechanism for planning projects that have well bounded activities with a clean start and end point, and with understood dependencies and sequences. But in the non-linear, sometimes chaotic world of Product Development, Gantt Charts can be inadequate, cumbersome, or even misleadingly inaccurate. In the session, we will explore an alternative using mechanism of Agile product development - a Backlog of value to deliver with estimations of size (effort) and a reality-based Burndown that shows a plan with visible assumptions. Together these mechanism provide an effective way to plan, track, and replan a complex Product Development effort.
