PLANNING & SCHEDULING

 

While it may be understood that planning and scheduling are associated, in fact the two disciplines are completely separate.

 

Planning is vital. Through accurate planning, an organisation lays the groundwork for its future, so it can take action today.

 

Scheduling, on the other hand, is the process that converts the plan into a road map that when followed, will ensure the project is successfully achieved, within the correct time and cost frameworks.

 

Put simply – the results of successful planning are best communicated though a schedule.
