This intensive course provides practical, hands-on experience in all aspects of managing a project schedule. Drawing on best practices, the workshop will explain advanced techniques for scheduling. In addition to expanding your ability to plan, develop, and maintain a project timeline, you will learn techniques for analyzing, communicating, authorizing, and reporting on schedules as well as for taking corrective actions. Hands-on exercises, team projects, case studies, group discussions and critical analysis foster the transfer of learning to real projects back at work.
