The Develop the Project Schedule (PMI – PMP) is course 10 of 28 of the Project Management Professional Certification Program (PMI-PMP). The course is aligned with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK6) developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

In order to plan a schedule for anything, from a birthday party to a mission, you need to make an educated guess of how long the work is going to take, and then figure out the overall schedule.

A huge part of your job as a project manager is to see that all the work happens at the right time. If it doesn’t, delays in one area can cause a domino effect that cascades through the remainder of the project.
