Schedule Diagnostics

A Sound Schedule Is the Key to a Successful Project

Project management is all about planning the work and then working the plan. It sounds so simple. Yet with the complexities inherent in today’s projects, teams still struggle to deliver projects successfully under the triple constraint of cost, time and scope.

Time and again, these projects come in over-time and over-budget — and everyone thinks it has to do with execution. But that’s only half of the equation. The fact is, if your schedule isn’t sound, then you’re working a faulty plan, guiding you toward an unsuccessful outcome.

The main flaw in most schedules is that they’re unrealistic due to overly ambitious planning, and inaccurate schedules simply can’t produce achievable success.

A sound schedule is the key to a successful project.
