Revising a Schedule to Complete on Time and on Budget

If you have determined that a plan is encountering unfavorable variances, you have to do something about it. If the project is in trouble, it’s important to remember one thing: You should use the plan to manage the project. Don’t deviate from the plan; change it! Depending on the type of problem you are having, you can employ different strategies to get the plan back on track. The bottom line is that something needs to change if you still plan to deliver on time and on budget with high quality and all expectations met.

Project provides many tools to help you revise a schedule, but first you have to know what will work for you on this project and in your particular situation. Remember that when it comes to revising a project plan there are limits: scope, time (the schedule), and costs (resources). Project managers must choose a combination of changes to stay within those limits.
