This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Technical Category of the Talent Triangle.
Renowned speaker and master scheduler, Eric Uyttewaal, will present an executive overview of his new book “Forecast Scheduling with Microsoft Project 2010”. He will show you how to forecast your project with just the schedule, without the need for advanced techniques like Earned Value. Forecast Scheduling builds onto his principle of Dynamic Scheduling that minimized the effort spent on scheduling projects. Eric will challenge you to forecast the actual finish date and total cost of your project, which is what most stakeholders expect from the scheduler. This presentation will show you how to create a dynamic model of the project to forecast it and take scheduling to the next level. The highlights of Forecast Scheduling are:
- Capture your promised dates … without killing the dynamic model!
- Minimize your effort on creating and maintaining the schedule
- Find the real Critical Path 2.0 instead of frustration with the old Critical Path Method
- Incorporate insights from project execution and update the schedule to forecast
Eric will explain these principles of Forecast Scheduling, demonstrate how they would work in practice and summarize their benefits. Come and see this NEW approach!
- Understand that you only need to create a good schedule to forecast a project
- Know how to create a dynamic model of your project to forecast it
- Be able to find the real Critical Path 2.0 in any project situation
