  • Hi,

    That's where a baseline becomes really important. The baseline provides a snapshot of where you were originally so you can see where time is lost.

    Yes the forecast finish date is alarming. Believe it! Unless something radically changes, your project will finish late.

  • Hi Rod,

    Baselining is not sufficing the need of hour

    As there are many activities which may not have been updated for daily progress, etc...

    Approach to identify key tasks contributors to the revised or new forecasted dates is required

  • Hi Rod, Any updates.

  • Yep,

    If you don't have a baseline and your programme isn't up to date, then the programme isn't useful.

    Your only option is the bite the bullet and get as accurate an update as possible, then reschedule remaining tasks.

    Unless something has changed or there is a lot of unreported progress, your project will finish late.

    Sorry, there are no shortcuts here and no magic solution that will do the work that should have been done, for you.

    Good luck and look forward to some hefty scheduling headaches!
