About the Program

In early 2003, PMI began exploration for developing the first practice standard for project scheduling. Focus would be placed on single project scheduling, with close coupling to the time management section of the PMBOK® Guide. In the summer of 2003, the project team was formed under the leadership of Douglas Clark, Project Manager, and Harold ‘‘Mike’’ Mosley, Jr. PMP, Deputy Project Manager. The project team would grow to include 179 members representing 20 countries. This presentation summarizes how the Practice Standard for Scheduling was developed, and also outlines its significant contributions to the project management profession.
