Much like maps with printed directions are outdated when construction sends us on a detour; static project schedules can not only be outdated, but actually send us down the wrong path with incorrect information for decision making. What’s needed today is the equivalent of a GPS system for our project schedules and PPM solutions.
A typical ‘Static Schedule’ is hard-coded with dates and offers no forecasting ability and as a result is not actionable. A Proactive Schedule, on the other hand, shows actual progress-to-date; reflects estimates to completion; predicts completion dates and total cost estimates; and enables corrective action and better decision-making.
In Microsoft Project, aligning with PMI’s Practice Standards for Work Breakdown Structures and Scheduling is perhaps the shortest path to building high quality Proactive Schedules for your project.
