How To: develop an Effective Schedule
will understand the importance of
implementing effective schedule planing and control techniques in a
structured way that directly involves the project stakeholders.
Mosaic's Five-Step approach to scheduling is designed to build and
maintain a positive
stakeholder consensus and uses the power of pro-active scheduling to
build and foster a strong team commitment and create successful project
or program outcomes.
This course is consistent with the Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Complex Projects, the PMI Practice Standard for Scheduling and the PMBOK® Guide.
Note: This course is designed for people who already know how to use a scheduling tool and wish to move their practice to a more advanced level focused on achieving positive outcomes.
It's just one dam project after another!
