1.What are some of the risks that must be considered in preparing a schedule? What external forces affect a project? Why do projects tend to go over the planned schedule? Some risks that must be considered when preparing a schedule include possible delays with certain tasks and not scheduling enough lead time to buffer those delays. Another risk is not adding certain tasks that are vital to the completion of the project. I have seen this happen first hand and it caused a great deal of issues for the remainder of the project. Some external forces to consider are weather related delays, issues with the supplier, or transportation problems. Projects tend to go over the planned schedule for a variety of different reasons which can include not scheduling all of the tasks needed to complete the project, issues with the people assigned to the project, and unforeseen risks that were not thought of and prepared for in advance. Not scheduling enough lead or lag time between tasks could also be a culprit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
