Ignoring The Time Management Portion Of Projects Leads To Delays, Busts Budgets, And Kills Profits

Just as a bid is an estimate of the costs needed to construct a project, the schedule is an estimate of the time needed to construct a project. The first step of properly managing your project time is planning your project and then working your plan. In order to manage your project using the project schedule, you will need to ensure that the project schedule represents your construction plan. Properly managing your project time also includes managing project risks, which includes managing added work, changes to the project, and dealing with unanticipated events. The benefits of this timely topic includes an experienced instructor who can provide the perspective of both the contractor, who is typically responsible for developing and updating the project schedule, and the owner, who is typically responsible with reviewing and accepting the project schedule and evaluating requests for additional time. We will also discuss how project schedules are used and misused to support a party's position.
