Efficient project management hinges on the meticulous crafting and execution of schedules. At the heart of this practice lies the Critical Path Method (CPM), the cornerstone technique employed by scheduling professionals worldwide. This presentation offers an insightful journey into the art of schedule management, providing a comprehensive overview of best practices aimed at empowering project managers and stakeholders alike.

Through a detailed exploration of the schedule creation process, attendees will gain a profound understanding of the intricate steps involved in establishing a schedule baseline. Emphasis will be placed on the critical role of logic, delineating the interdependence between predecessors and successors within the CPM framework. Central to this presentation is the dual-process approach to Schedule Management, delineating the distinct sub-processes of Schedule Development and Schedule Monitoring & Control. Attendees will glean practical insights into each stage, equipping them with the tools necessary for effective schedule oversight and adjustment.

Drawing upon industry best practices, this presentation not only furnishes attendees with the knowledge to construct and sustain project schedules but also underscores the pivotal role of integrated project management. By positioning the schedule as the linchpin of project management endeavors, this session empowers participants to navigate the complexities of project execution with confidence and precision.
