This book is the second edition (re-titled to better reflect its objective) of CIOB’s highly successful Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Complex Projects,1 first published in 2011. Since 2011, leading authorities globally have increasingly recognised ‘schedule is king and have placed increased emphasis on the proactive management of time, using dynamic modelling, as a precursor to project success. In keeping with this theme, the USA Government Accountability Office (GAO)published its Schedule Assessment Guide: Best Practices for Project Schedules in 2015 to complement its well-regarded Cost Estimating and Assessment Guide.

The CIOB has also updated its Complex Projects Contract, 2013 as the Time and Cost Management Contract suite 2015, including back-to-back Consultancy Appointment and Subcontract, and many other standards and guides requiring effective project time management have also been updated or published since the first edition of the Guide was released.

This Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Major Projects - Dynamic Time Modelling does not seek to duplicate these standards; rather it provides the practical and rigorous framework needed to guide scheduling practice to achieve the objectives defined by these standards. Applying the guidance contained in this book will offer any project team the best way to achieve the effective management of the time available to complete their project, conform to recognised good practices, and consequently create the best opportunity for a successful project outcome.
