Project Controls & Scheduling

 The PMKI Library

Subjects covered in this section take an in-depth look at the function of project controls and scheduling, in part to support out PMI-SP courses, and that go beyond the core project management processes covered in Section 2 - PMBOK Knowledge Areas

While 'planning' is a tools and techniques focused discipline, it is important to remember the core techniques in planning are:

1. Thinking about the objective to be achieved
2. Gathering ideas from people
3. Organizing the ideas in a sensible way
4. Validating the proposed solution
5. Communicating the solution and getting buy-in
6. Monitoring progress to see what is going to plan and where
    re-planning or reorganizing is required.

The various tools and techniques used in planning sit in point 3 above and assist in point 6. Many of the tools are discussed in this section of the PMKI.
