    Carl Chatfield: Which Bookend Are You?

    • 0 Comments
    I don't mention my day job at Microsoft much in this blog, but recently I found myself involved with some new project initiation work and simultaneously with the tail end of a new product launch.* I felt a bit like my favorite bookends: one pushing hard to get a project underway, the other pushing equally hard to get a project concluded more or less as planned. Here are the bookends in action, doing their job: If you are a project manager, do you spend more time and effort at the beginning or end of your projects? So Many Choices! The project initiation guy on the left, who I'll call LB, has a special focus: moving an idea from concept to the start of execution. Let's assume that LB is in an organization where the initiation of new projects is done by those with organizational authority to...

    Carl Chatfield: Task types: What's the deal?

    • 1 Comments
    Carl Chatfield here, taking a break from working on Microsoft Project 2010 Step by Step . One feature that even experienced Project users sometimes have trouble with is task types. There are only three task types, but their impact on task scheduling is not always easy to predict. This week I look at task types: fixed duration, fixed units, and fixed work, and how they affect the scheduling of tasks. Tell Me About Your Childhood To understand why the task types feature exists at all, you first need to know about the scheduling formula. The scheduling formula is, quite simply, the simple little math formula that makes Project an active scheduling engine and not just a spreadsheet plus Gantt Chart drawing tool. As you may recall from previous blog posts, the scheduling formula is: ...
