Why might a project schedule need to be compressed? What are  some of the ramifications of compressing a schedule?  You're midway through a project and realize that the project will miss a key milestone. To deliver on-time, you’ll need to play with the schedule and look for resources. Crashing or compressing the schedule may be your only feasible option to deliver on- time. Introduction Delivering a project on-time will always be challenging for project managers.

As we'll see at the end of this article, both of these techniques come with their own challenges and risks .

    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.
