The College of Performance Management (CPM) welcomes the Project Management College of Scheduling (PMCOS) to EVM World 2014.   Scheduling experts from across the country have developed a workshop track of 12 sessions dedicated to developing, implementing, maintaining, and executing effective schedules.  Ms. Gwen Barger, the PMCOS VP of Programs, is Track Coordinator.

In order for projects to Fuel the Value of Project Performance, programs must establish and maintain a credible schedule as the foundation for statusing and measuring project performance.  Sessions will share lessons learned and case studies while walking through the practices of creating and maintaining the schedule, establishing a viable network, conducting scheduling analysis, and communicating the value of the schedule.

  • PMCOS Board, Panel Leading an Open Idea Exchange with EVM World attendees
