The core topic, and the most important function, in project management is scheduling the work. More than any other aspect of project planning, scheduling is the key to project success. The project plan is summarized in the schedule. The Gantt Chart, the illustration of the schedule, is the primary project management document that sits on the wall of virtually every project manager. Scheduling is not limited to the planning phase however and is not limited to creating a critical path schedule. Projects must be re-scheduled throughout their execution as times and conditions change. This class focuses on providing the means to create and update schedules in a way that maximizes the chances for project success.
