Creating a useful, efficient schedule requires skills and knowledge. In today’s job market skilled employees are hard to find and employee turnover is high even in the best of companies. Constantly changing schedulers can cause a non-streamlined, confusing schedule that is no longer serving the purpose of facilitating project management.
Hiring an outside scheduling expert to review your schedule gives you a clear picture of what is going on. Schedule reviews take usually a couple of days, depending on the complexity and the number of inconsistencies. You will receive a clear, concise report of recommendations on how to make your schedule as efficient as possible.
After a successful schedule review, you know what your company's problems are and can focus on correcting those points. Having a structured schedule helps you to manage your project efficiently and can help you finally meet your budget and deadline.
