Creative Scheduling

Project Managers always face customer schedule pressures and drive their teams to be responsive.  Sometimes those responses can be very creative.

Creative Scheduling

A creative scheduler once remarked,

“Einstein’s Theory could improve my chart.”

“By accelerating the plan…”

To the speed of light if we can.”

“We could finish before we start.”

About donmcalister

I retired at the end of 2011, after a 39 year career in the Aerospace industry as an Propulsion Engineer, Engineering Manager and Program Manager. My professional interests and expertise is in the areas of Program, Risk and Knowledge Management. I'm passionate about life-long learning involving a wide variety of topics and I'm committed to sharing my knowledge and ideas with those who are interested. My primary hobby is performing jazz music. I'm a jazz keyboard player, and vocalist, and I'm on the Board of Directors of the non-profit Simi Valley Jazz Club, which is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of jazz music from the '20's through the 60's.
