Many thanks for your second assessment and apologies for the delay in providing feedback.
This assessment (Assessment 2 Project time management techniques) was detailed and demonstrated your knowledge skills
and understanding of Time Management and demonstrated how time management is a critically important skill for successful
projects.
Your submission was also backed up with evidence of experience of managing project time at Leightons.
This competency and its supporting evidence, have demonstrated to me your experience, knowledge and understanding of
Project Time Management.
Francis, projects that succeed in meeting schedule have a good chance of staying within budget. The most common cause of
blown budgets is lack of schedule management.
Your progress is pleasing and I look forward to your next assessment.
