Description

If you’re new to project scheduling, or want to improve your scheduling skills, this course will give you what you need to be successful. We’ll begin by examining what project scheduling is and looking at the components that go into a schedule. Then I’ll guide you through identifying the work that needs to be done, estimating time and cost, and putting tasks into the right order. I’ll describe how to build a project team and assign resources to tasks. I’ll also provide tips for working with part-time workers and remote teams. We’ll explore ways to fine-tune the schedule to balance people’s workloads. Finally, we’ll go over methods for managing a schedule to deliver what’s important and keep the project on-track from start to finish.
