      A “Sure Fire” Way to Ensure Schedule Performance


      Project Managers are usually confronted with situations and events that have a negative effect on the established schedule and they are still expected to bring the project in on time. One proven method to improve schedule compliance is to employ process mapping methodology to selected processes. This analytical improvement technique provides project teams with an avenue to reduce the time required for a selected process without reducing quality. Assessing Project Risks and Business Continuity Planning will also be discussed.

      The objective of this course is to provide Project Managers with critical tools to identify risks and reduce the time it takes to complete processes that effect project schedules.  The material covered will address:  

      • “I will give you anything but more time” - What every Project Manager faces                  
      • The Schedule Squeeze  
      • “Parkinson’s Law”  
      • Improving Schedule Performance  
      • The Key – Process Mapping (PM) Using Process Mapping to maintain / reduce scheduled tasks 
      • Implementing improvements  
      • Identifying processes to map & improve 
