Handling Unrealistic Project Schedules eLearning Course

Understand Why Unrealistic Schedules Occur, and Prevent Them on Your Projects

Do your schedules seem to be workable during planning, but fall apart during execution? Have you ever struggled to get management buy-in on a schedule that is based in reality? Has your boss given you a project deadline you believe is completely unrealistic? There are proven techniques used by experience PMs for handling common scheduling problems on projects, and in just 8 hours you can learn them!

During this self-directed eLearning course, students will learn to gather all data necessary to set up a realistic schedule model, follow sound practices to prevent the most common project scheduling issues, and explore options and trade-offs to develop an optimal project schedule. Students will also review the process of obtaining management approval for a realistic schedule, using a range of methods to control a schedule while the work is being done—and learn to identify and implement practical solutions to common schedule problems during a project. This online course includes the following features:

  • A 7-section interactive tutorial
  • Downloadable forms and templates
