Ultimately, the purpose of the project schedule is to enhance the chances of successful project delivery. To be useful then, a proactive schedule should always reflect the true intention (both scope and time) AND actual progress of the project. It should clearly communicate work and priorities to project team members, provide accurate forecasting of remaining effort and durations and identify variances before it is too late for corrective action.

This course provides comprehensive background on the principles of Proactive Scheduling as well a practical approach to deploying these principles in Microsoft Project and Project Server.
