If a project manager was given three wishes concerning an ongoing project, one would surely be its "on time" completion. This course covers scheduling basics from a list-making perspective. You will learn how to develop lists of project activities, assign duration to listed activities, and show interdependence between activities on a logic diagram. You will be taught how to calculate the start/finish timing along these activity paths, prioritize activities based on timing, and to provide answers to critical project questions. And, you will be schooled in updating your schedule -- your list -- in accordance with actual progress. This course can benefit you whether you're a scheduling novice or a seasoned veteran. For the novice, use this course to come up to speed on scheduling terminology and technique. No prior scheduling knowledge is assumed for this course. Let scheduling become a valuable tool in assuring "on-time" performance for your projects. If you're a seasoned veteran that sees merit in "to-do" lists yet relegates scheduling to a necessary evil, perhaps you'll gain a fresh perspective. Seeing schedules characterized as dynamic project lists may serve to take the drudgery out of scheduling.
