Workshop Title: Overview of How to Develop FDA Within A Scheduling Software
Co-Presenting with Sinead Walsh
Delays happen in projects. That’s a given. What isn’t a given is how project managers and schedulers document, record and ultimately defend these delays. Winning a claim for EoT or damages is easier if you have adequate records, relevant documentation and a persuasive case to make. This talk will provide you with an overview of how to use your scheduling tool to best prepare for and respond to inevitable project delays. Find out what features you can exploit and what features you should avoid from first setting up a baseline programme through progress updates.
