“Interruptions can be viewed as sources of irritation or opportunities for service, as moments lost or experience gained, as time wasted or horizons widened.
They can annoy us or enrich us, get under our skin or give us a shot in the arm. Monopolize our minutes or spice our schedules, depending on our attitude toward them.” William Arthur Ward
Scheduling is one of the key elements in any project. The more time you spend on the schedule up front prior to work commencing, the smoother the project will run.
It considers the sequencing of activities, predecessors to tasks, and should account for all tasks to be completed in order to bring the project to a successful conclusion. Should delays occur, a well-planned schedule will allow the team to push the schedule dates out without disrupting the entire flow of the process.
