“Staying on the Critical Path”

*This course is only open for enrollment to ABC members and their staff.


Constructing Opportunity is offering a workshop designed for field foremen and supervisors tasked with managing the project schedule.

How important is the project schedule? Can you identify the critical path? Can you distinguish the important from the urgent? This workshop is designed to help Field Leaders identify distractions that divert attention from the critical path, understand the impact of falling behind the schedule and manage the many demands on their time. This course is open for enrollment to all ABC members and their staff.

At the end of the workshop participants should be able to:

  • Identify the critical path in a schedule, understand the various elements and their relationships
  • Recognize barriers to staying on schedule
  • Implement accountability strategies
  • Understand the role communication plays in the success of a project
  • Recognize when to say no and do so respectfully

Testimonial by Steve Rice of Southwest Painting & Decorating:

“I think everything went great. I have had a difficult time conveying to my leaders how to become better leaders. You two do a better job at breaking down the why’s & the how’s of good leadership. Of course, you are teaching me as well. I would like to continue this program with new topics & brush up on already discussed topics. I see some skills starting to grab hold & I believe it’s from what’s absorbed in the sessions then brought to real world. Thanks!”
