Energy industries encompass a broad group of sectors - oil and natural gas, coal, nuclear, wind, solar, hydro, geothermal etc. Each of these industries contain very different types of organizations, and what constitutes risk in wind projects is far different than in nuclear. But they all share a similar challenge; to produce more energy at a lower cost with fewer emissions.

by Sako Holtian
August 12, 2021 | 60:53 | Views: 8,795 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.67 / 5

A project schedule is an indispensable tool in the hands of a Project Manager to efficiently manage and direct project work. A well-constructed and maintained schedule is a key ingredient needed for the success of any project. The DCMA 14-point assessment offers a project manager an industry defined method to quantitatively evaluate a schedule and improve its quality. The project manager may use the DCMA 14-point assessment at the beginning of the project as a set of guidelines for developing a logic driven, solid and manageable schedule, and throughout the life of the project, as a set of health checks for periodically evaluating the schedule against a set of measurable criteria.

Working to ‘Done,’ Not on What You Have ‘To Do’

by Lonnie Pacelli

Don't Make This Critical Path Assumption

Start Date Set in Stone? Schedule Using the Work-Forward Timebox Model

by Lonnie Pacelli

We're often given an end date and have to work backward to derive when an initiative should start (or should have started). But what about when a project manager is able to provide a start date? That's where the work-forward timebox model can help!

by Bart Gerardi

It can be tempting to fill up your strategic planning "bag" using all available information and resources. But doing so can cause problems as the plan progresses. Sometimes leaving some things out of the initial plan is better down the road.


"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I... took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
