Benefits...regardless of role

Project Managers, Project Schedulers, Project Management Office/Project Controllers--whatever the role, if you're responsible for assessing and improving schedule performance, the Schedule Performance Analyzer© for Excel has benefits for you.



Project Manager

To keep the project on schedule, PMs need fast, accurate measures of current schedule performance and estimates of future schedule impact. If the project is running late, they need to understand the probability of recovery. Finally, they need to know how well execution is adhering to plan and how deviations will delay the project. 

All of this must be easily understood, readily communicated, and easy to share.

That's a tall order. But, the Schedule Performance Analyzer© for Excel delivers it.



Project Scheduler

To operate the schedule, Schedulers need more than the "big picture". They need the details behind it to answer such questions as: If the project is late, how late is it?  If the project needs to recover, how much time will it take and at what efficiency? If execution does not adhere to the plan, where is it deviating? 

At same time, Schedulers must communicate their findings.

By framing the metrics as dates, times, and durations, ES faciliates such communication across roles, projects, and portfolios.



PMO/Project Controller

Tasked with helping projects stay on schedule, PMOs and Controllers need quantitative metrics that apply consistently across roles, projects, and portfolios.

Consistency helps PMOs and Controllers quickly and fairly assess status across projects. It sets common grounds for feedback to projects and for oversight reports to management.

As standards, ES metrics have been institutionalized by the Project Management Institute, U.S. National Defence Industry Association, and International Organization for Standardization.
