It’s the end of another year, a time when we all take pause to look back over the last 365 days, to celebrate the victories and grow from the defeats.

Feature Spotlight: A2E Builders - Client Selections

Many of the most successful companies I have worked with can quickly identify the selections process as one of the most crucial – and chaotic – parts of any project. With input from clients, designers, contractors, and vendors, there can be a lot of communication swirling in different directions. Selecting options, gaining approvals, ordering products – although individually small tasks, they all add up to a large factor in bringing your project in on budget and on schedule.

Scheduling Pro Tip #3: What Makes the Critical Path Critical

Many challenges faced in project management could be avoided if the roofer didn’t have to depend on the framer or the carpenter on the plumber, however, we know that’s not the case – what’s the roof to do without the frame? Most tasks in your project schedule have relationships to one another, which is why coordination and visibility is vital.

Scheduling Pro Tip #2: Milestone Management

Your goal for each project is to bring that project in on time and under budget. You wouldn’t want to simply outline the tasks that need to be completed within a project schedule and hope for the best. You would want to highlight points throughout the project that mark progress achieved and keep you focused on the task at hand. The use of integral management devices such as milestones allow for you to keep a close measure on the progress of your project and ensure that you are on the path to successful completion.

Scheduling Pro Tip #1: Set, Save, & Analyze Project Baselines

In a perfect world, project schedules follow the original approved timeline from start to finish. But, any experienced construction manager can tell you, in reality, the final project schedule will be vastly different from the initial project schedule. As the project progresses, it’s important to evaluate changes to the project schedule and understand what factors contribute to these changes. Implementing business intelligence methods like baseline reviews gives you the ability to analyze cause-and-effect within the project and adjust accordingly – now and in the future – to ensure success for your company.
