  • Jahidul Islam Bangladesh Projects rarely follow the plan laid out. During the project the Project Manager should assess each step. If there are delays they should identify alternate actions to bring the project back within the time constraints. Often this is done by putting more resources, time or money into a particular activity. This course of action should be thought through carefully. Time and costs need to be traded off in order to get the project completed. After the critical path and the slack time in other activities have been identified, it may be possible to expedite (hasten) or crash the schedule. This involves identifying tasks that could possibly be reduced in time if enough money or resources were available. Again it is a matter of assessing whether the extra cost or effort is worth the saving in time.

  • Maria Rosario Acuña-Hilton United States of America My thought regarding scheduling and felling to deliver any project, it is a serious problem. If working outside we should have in consideration the weather factor that can cause a severe delay to complete any project and it can cost a lot more.

  • Adam Muhammad Usman Namibia Does this imply that there was a problem in the planning stage? what factors could result to such delay in program implementation to warrant complete derailment from planned activities? which will invariably affect the project budget.
