#1 Expert Judgement

As a project manager, you will always have to rely on the knowledge and experience of others. Most at times, you have to rely on what the expert has to tell you about the project based on what has happened in the past. You will need the advice of the expert as it relates to schedule development, management and control. It will also assist you in deciding on the schedule methodologies that you are going to use for your project. This is also referred to as the developmental approach for the project. 

At this stage, you also have to decide on the type of scheduling software that you are going to manage the project. At times, you may need to work with the IT department of your organisation to develop a scheduling software that will be used for the project. You also have to determine the specific industry for which the project will be used. This will allow you to decide on factors to be considered when developing a tool for managing the project.

It can also include determining how detailed the schedule need to be, the duration of waves for rolling wave planning, and how often it should be reviewed and updated. 


An appropriate balance between the level of detail needed to manage the schedule and the amount of time it takes to keep it up to date need to be reached for each project.
