I have just completed my second book-signing event at Chapters-Chinook, Calgary, AB.

Unique to the day's experience was a lively discussion with a group of young students. They were highly inquisitive and showed genuine interest on the subject of risk and risk-based management.

My First Book Signing @ Indigo-Signal Hills, Calgary

20-May-2017 My first book signing event went well today at Indigo Signal Hill. I met a lot of interesting, intelligent people and was able to introduce the book to them. Had some lively discussion with a few who said that the book was timely. Some promised to check online. My next book signing event is after two weeks, June 3, 2017, Saturday, at Chapters Chinook. I hope to see some of you there!It's another good day today!

Planning & Scheduling through the Gates

Project planning and scheduling processes follow a management framework called the Project Implementation Model (PIM). Such model divides the project into sub-boundaries called stages, gates, or checkpoints.

Does not really matter what proprietary term they call it. Company Y can call it Y-PIM (Company Y Implementation Model). Construction firm ABC might call theirs ABC-PIM.

Company ABC can call it any name because the name will not affect the framework’s gated process effectiveness.

Risk-based Management Framework

A project management framework is important in effectively managing projects. Planning and scheduling management framework is essential in managing plans and schedule. An engineering management framework governs engineering works as does a safety management framework provide standards and guidance to all safety works.

Recommended Steps to Effective Gate 1 IAP

Interactive Planning (IAP) is a methodology used by projects to engage important stakeholders and subject matter experts in a facilitated workshop setting.

The engagement process is through collaborative discussion of project plan and strategy to develop a reliable, complete, and successful project schedule. Interactive Planning is also widely known as Participative Planning (PP).

Planning, Scheduling, and Safety

All of us have seen the aftermath of those who defied the traffic sign “Drive slowly! Do not exceed the speed limits" or "Slow down, dangerous curve."  

As you drive on the highway, you begin to recognize that many drivers just ignore the speed limit and drive 10, 20, or sometimes 30 kilometers per hour over the limit.

Everyone knows that speed kills, and seeing someone traveling above the limit makes us question how any intelligent person can commit such a reckless act. It is one of the number one ways to cause or get into a car accident.

FREE WHITE PAPER: TOP TEN PREREQUISITES OF A SCHEDULE BASELINE

We all want a reliable project baseline for all established processes to work well. The official schedule baseline gives the project a good line of sight to what it wants. Having a good baseline increases the company’s strategic advantage and makes it more successful compared to those who have none. Project baseline must be established according to plan, with care and prudence, following the ten prerequisites provided in this White Paper as a minimum.

Phantom Schedules

Construction planner and scheduler Frank Lee was at it again. He was in the process of creating and developing another phantom project schedule for the Project Control Manager. The initiative started when the Project Manager complained to the Project Controls Manager.
