How to Determine the Right Scheduling Approach for your Project

Agile is an adaptive approach to managing projects, however there are many other predictive scheduling approaches that may work better. This topic covers the strengths and weaknesses of Agile, Critical Path Method, Resource Critical Method, Critical Chain, Earned Value and Earned Work approaches and how to determine which approach works best for your project management needs.  This topic is based on the research of Eric Uyttewall, who is also the author of Critical Path 2.0 and Forecast Scheduling.
