How to Create a Good Quality P50 Risk-based Baseline Schedule

Hi All,

Planning and Scheduling - Stage 1

The Butterfly Effect and How It Will Impact Your Project

Previously, we have discussed how schedule pressure and various schedule compression techniques may manifest themselves unpredictably and with adverse effect on the project. When pondering this correlation it might be comforting to recall the age old adage of, “haste makes waste”; my grandfather would always postulate. He would know.
