Forecast Scheduling shows you how you can forecast your project with just the schedule even without advanced techniques like Earned Value. It builds on the author's principle of Dynamic Scheduling that demonstrates how to minimize the effort spent on a schedule. In this book, the author takes scheduling to the next level by showing you how to create a model of the project to forecast it dynamically. The highlights of this approach are:
- Use deadline dates initially and the baseline schedule to capture promises made. Too many schedulers use the schedule itself to reflect their promises and then want to keep their schedule static. In our approach, the schedule will be a dynamic model a great tool to manage the project.
- Update your schedule with revised estimates. Many project managers only enter actual progress. In order to forecast, you need to capture revised forecasts from your team members and schedule them in the future. Once team members have started working on a task, they know much better how long the remainder will take.

Key features:
- Aligned with all latest Standards from PMI
- Tips that result in more accurate forecasts from your schedule
- Checklist and corresponding filters to assure the quality of your schedule
- Real-world examples and reality-tested guidelines
- Solid step-by-step procedures that lead to success
- Clear screen shots, annotations, illustrations and cartoons
- Insightful stories, hands-on exercises, solutions and review questions
