‘Forecast Scheduling’ (500 pages) shows you how you can forecast your project with just the project schedule, even without advanced techniques like Earned Value, Critical Chain or Agile.
The author invented the 'Principle of Dynamic Scheduling': If one thing changes in your project, you should have to change only a single cell in your project schedule to get the scheduling engine recalculate the entire schedule. Using this principle, you minimize your effort maintaining the schedule during the busy execution phase of the project.
This leads to the ‘Principle of Forecast Scheduling’: If your project schedule is set up as a dynamic schedule and as a valid and robust model of the project, it will continuously forecast your project.
These two, simple principles led to all best practices described in this textbook. By following them, you will take your project scheduling to the next level as a project manager. In addition, PMOs will have a framework and checklist to analyze the quality of the project schedules on behalf of all project stakeholders.
NEW this edition of the textbook is printed in letter size of 8.5*11 inch, which is a more common size.
