Topic Description
Microsoft Projects has been a sustained, reliable Project monitoring tool in the construction industry. Project Managers and Project Directors have significant expectations from this tool in terms of understanding the current health of the project and the future bottlenecks. Decisions pertaining to expenditure are expected to be preponed or postponed based on feedback from the planners. For example, a critical activity may need to be addressed even at a premium but an activity with float can await multiple rounds of negotiation,At senior management, we expect predictability and control on the future schedules. Only post facto analysis or display of milestones in future does not tell us the complete story. Design delays upset the schedules considerably, which is often not captured by the MSP schedules. MSP seldom finds any use in resourcing and time management at a construction site.

The presentation will pose questions to the PM professionals and will be aimed at my learning from this body of managers for improving predictability from Project Management tools.

Expected Take-away
Hopefully, an insight into the mind of the senior management and the kind of information that will help in risk mitigation and cost optimization through MSP
