Because of overwhelming demand for additional information and training on Realistic Scheduling and Critical Path Analysis, I am offering two special teleconference seminars on the Basics of Realistic Scheduling.
Session 1: 12 Tips to Realistic Scheduling (Wednesday, March 21, 2:00pm EST)
Session 2: Basics of Change Management and Critical Path Analysis (Wednesday, April 4, 2:00pm EST)
As you can see from follow-up articles materials that I sent last week, you can spend weeks reading. Part of time management is finding a more effective and efficient way to gain this same information. I will be offering two 90 minute seminars that quickly cover the desired information. It will be a teleconference presentation; Q&A will be covered through the phone and facebook chat sessions (allowing individuals to quietly ask questions in an office environment).
12 Tips to Realistic Scheduling
Whether you’re managing a software development project or coordinating your children’s soccer and dance lesson times, schedules are helpful tools for orchestrating a sequence of events. Most schedules involve a start and end date, and include tasks, task duration, and dependencies between tasks. But no matter how well you plan for a series of events, unexpected events will compete for time and threaten deadlines. When we do not handle unexpected events and the interpersonal elements well, our schedules fall apart.
Good scheduling is a combination of art and science. My twelve tips stress prioritization, clarifying values, and comparing the relative worth of each activity.
Basic Change Management and Critical Path Analysis
Successful people maintain order amidst chaos and ever-changing challenges. In this seminar we learn how to manage change easily and effectively. A very effective and easy way to quickly and visibly identify risks in a project is to outline the Critical Path in a visual flowchart. The workflow method can be used to analyze anything: Critical Path Workflow analysis is effective on component dependencies, process step dependencies, even resource conflicts.
Pricing Information: $27 per seminar or $40 to attend both.
