Project Scheduling Workshop

"Organizing is what you do before you do something,
so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up."
- A. A. Milne (Winnie-the Pooh)

The Project Scheduling Workshop teaches the "how to" of scheduling tasks, time and resources.  This one-day seminar/workshop includes time for participants to apply what they learn by scheduling their own projects.  This can be done on forms that are provided or by using any scheduling-friendly application including calendar management programs like MS Outlook, spreadsheets like MS Excel, and scheduling applications including MS Project or Project KickStart. 

This project Scheduling Workshop also includes practical examples for using schedules for project analysis, tracking and reporting.  This workshop offers as much about why to schedule as how to schedule.
