  • Augustine Antwi-Boasiako Ghana The key thing that we are talking about is time constraint due to delay. This this happens the project manager will have to allocate much resources (labor) to the component of the project so as to catch up.

  • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya 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.

  • Ize Adava United States of America If projects would "rarely follow laid out plans" then why plan at all?

  • Lesley McLaughlin United States of America This is where experience can make or break a project. An experienced PM is more likely to be able to look at the components of the project and determine where changes can be made that will have the least effect on the timeline and cost. If caught early enough, perhaps there will be no cost or time ramifications at all.

  • Eni Grace Nigeria a good project manager must review his project steadily as to avoid loops and holes that may cost delay in a later time as the project progress.

  • Eskalehu Abeje wubu Ethiopia Scheduling and Expediting 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.

  • Aggrey Kegome Kenya As long as there will be reduction in the whole scope ,there is need to review the activities and possibly carry out the tasks in good time subject to availability of resources.

  • Nothando Gumpo United Kingdom This phase takes a lot of assessing each steps and finding right alternatives to cut delays however it requires a lot of planning and resource input

  • Joshua Tawiah Ghana Supposing a project delays and the project manager decides on another alternative in order to bring the project to a successful completion, whose responsibility is it to bear the extra cost if any?

    • Augustine Antwi-Boasiako Ghana What causes the delay? Was it weather or natural disaster? Delay are bound to happen but if it continues then the project manager will be tarnishing his image. In the course of the monitoring and evaluation goes along the chain and therefore this could be detected in the earliest stage to prevent huge loss.

    • Benedict Dassinor Ghana A good project manager never delays and if it happens, the project manager must design another scope of work if possible and submit it to the project owner(stakeholders) for possible approval hence extra cost will be borne by the owner. Note: collection of requirements are very important before the project work begins to prevent such occurrences

  • ANNETTE ROBINSON United States of America True enough issues may arise. But for the most part if the project is planned accurately and the right staff encompass the team is should go as planned. I have learned that its not always the project but who was chosen for the project. Is this considered when scheduling or better yet in the planning phase?

    • George Ugim Nigeria every activity is plan in order of priority, when a project manager senses danger, he dedicate more time, efforts and resources in order to achive a particular project.
