Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

What is the role of a project scheduler? All too many project participants do not think this question through. Many project owners assume their schedulers are supposed to be critics of all contractor schedule submittals to ensure that such schedule submittals do not document any owner caused delay. Owner representatives (design professionals and construction managers) often assume that their schedulers should review schedule submittals from the perspective of the owner. Contractor project management teams frequently deal with schedulers in a similar manner as they deal with superintendents. That is, the think of project schedulers as being “in charge of” the scheduling activity. And, all too many schedulers think of the project scheduler as “their schedule”.
