Takeaway: One of the most valuable resources a Project Manager has is time; this may be work hours, calendar days, or even just personal time. In order to balance all the needs of a single project (much less multiple projects), the project calendar must be understood, built, and monitored. By setting realistic milestones, leveraging technology (such as project management software), keeping open communication between the various parties, and being aware of the potential need for modifying the calendar, a project manager will have an easier time keeping projects moving in the right direction.
