What Makes a Great Construction Schedule—and a Great Scheduler

Too often, project participants give little thought to the role of the project scheduler, assuming they are supposed to offer critiques of contractor schedule submittals, ensure that the submittals don’t delay the project, and review schedule submittals from the perspective of the owner. But a competent scheduler can do all this and more at all phases of the project, meaning your team may be missing out on a critical resource.

You can avoid making common mistakes and assumptions when it comes to process schedulers, with input and advice from industry pros Olga Russell and James G. Zack, Jr. Russell and Zack will outline the types of misconceptions you may be making, and provide insight that will smooth your project and speed its completion. Schedulers can play key roles in construction planning—don’t let this great resource go to waste.

Attend this live webinar to learn the full meaning of the schedule and scheduler, who really owns the schedule, and why project schedules fail. Russell and Zack will also outline the role of the scheduler when it comes to schedule planning and development, management and control, coordination and communication, and change management. Your project and your reputation depend on timely deliverables—make your scheduler one of your top assets.

After attending this webinar, you will clearly understand the critical role a competent scheduler can play in planning, scheduling and closing your construction project successfully – including the details they must master – and the non-technical skills they must employ – to be more effective.
