Topics will include but are not limited to:

  1. Including summary tasks in project sequencing;
  2. Assigning resources to summary tasks;
  3. Constraining activities rather than sequencing dynamically;
  4. Scheduling project tasks as late as possible;
  5. Leveling resources without analysis;
  6. Inadequate baselining techniques;
  7. Using elapsed durations for team schedules;
  8. Incorrect calendar association resulting in incorrect schedules;
  9. Organizing project tasks incorrectly forcing incorrect reports.

After attending this session you should be able to:

  1. Identify inappropriate practices in their MS Project schedules.
  2. Resolve issues created by these practices and
  3. Leverage their learning in future project plans by avoiding the recurrence of inappropriate practices.

Each of the identified inappropriate practices affects a project plan.

The demonstrations are:

  • Violate an established best practice
  • Identify and illustrate the issues created
  • Resolve them quickly.
