At Ten Six, we know that many organizations don’t have experienced in-house project schedulers. You might be considering hiring a scheduling consultant or outsourcing project scheduling to an experienced expert. Right now, that feels like a big step for your team.
We’ve put together a brand new ebook to step you through what it is like to work with professional schedulers: whether that’s Oracle Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project experts. Our Beginner’s Guide to Working with Schedulers will help you understand whether it’s the right time to bring in outside help to create, manage and maintain a project schedule to all the appropriate standards and compliance requirements that are relevant to your work.
In the ebook, you’ll learn:
- What a scheduler does and when you need them
- The 6 reasons why experienced schedulers are a must have for your team
- Easy ways to quickly fill the skills gap on your project to give clients confidence and keep the work moving forward
- The competitive advantage that companies like yours are banking from outsourcing scheduling.
This is the perfect guide for you if:
- You have just won a new project and need to rapidly ramp up your project team…
- You are looking for short-term project support that doesn’t warrant a full-time hire…
- You have corporate moratoriums on increasing full-time headcount…
- You don’t have the bandwidth to go through the recruitment, induction and training processes…
- You have a skill gap in their team for Primavera P6 application or technical consultants…
…but you don’t know whether it’s worth moving ahead with engaging additional help (spoiler alert: it probably is!).
Whether you already have a plan for the project, or whether you are starting from scratch, expert schedulers can pull together all the relevant information. They will make sure the schedule is compliant with any mandated criteria that your client is asking for.
A professionally prepared schedule will include clear identification of the critical path, cost and schedule integration. It will also include resource loading data so you can make sure the right people on your team are available at the right time so the work moves forward consistently and reliably.
However, scheduling isn’t a one-off activity. The effort of maintaining and reporting on the work runs throughout the program. A contract scheduler can put the required effort in up front to get the schedule set up and trackable, and then either hand it over to one of your in-house team or manage it on an ongoing basis for however many hours that work requires.
The ebook goes into just the right amount of detail to help you take the next steps for project scheduling in the most appropriate way.
We’ve packed a lot into 16 pages, so you’ll quickly be able to build your own knowledge and make the right choices for your projects and programs. And if you decide that outsourcing scheduling is the appropriate thing to do at this time, we’ll be right here ready to help when you need us.
