Successful project management involves effective plan schedule management. Performing a critical path analysis is a proven way to create a strong, workable project schedule. In this course, you'll learn about the critical path method and the use of project schedule network diagrams. You'll explore aspects of planning like total and free float, leads, lags, and forward and backward passes. Finally, you'll learn to properly sequence activities for maximum efficiency and success.
