Directions

Executives expect projects to be executed on specifications, on time, and on budget. Proper communication with Project Managers and providing them with adequate support is key to successful projects. And, among all aspects of project management, scheduling and risk management (which can translate into schedules), are arguably the most mathematical and difficult to understand. Therefore, what aspects of scheduling do an executive need to be familiar with? What questions could an executive ask in a meeting to get adequate information and support the project manager? The event will cover the following points:

  • Why do Executives/Managers need to understand and review schedules?
  • Characteristics of good and bad schedules
  • What should an Executive/Manager expect from a schedule?
  • Questions that should be asked in a Schedule Review
  • Executive/Managerial Homework
  • Understanding Slippage and Schedule Recovery options
