What It's About:

Despite widespread adoption of scheduling software, feedback from nearly 5,000 suppliers and trades has consistently revealed that scheduling remains one of the toughest challenges for builders. Even the best software can actually make a bad schedule worse. No matter which product you choose, at the heart of the problem is the complexity of the product and process. During this session, 20 specific challenges that negatively impact the schedule along with their solutions will be shared, and you will gain the tools to help you identify and prioritize your largest obstacles and calculate the impact of schedule loss.
