In a traditional construction projects, planning engineers spend 15 to 20% of their time for planning and re-planning. The remaining 80 to 85% of their time is completely dedicated for monitoring, controlling, and reporting. However, if you did the planning wrong, you would suffer for remaining project duration because you did not plan for your planning. Therefore, we developed for you a complete system that works (based on mega project case study). We will give you the full plan of a planning tasks in a construction project and will teach you how to effectively implement it in this workshop case study or any future project using our custom-made tools and techniques.
