  • Abstract

    This was the fourth in a series of Crossrail Learning Legacy webinars focused on Project and Programme Management hosted by our partners at the APM.

    The Planning function in Crossrail supports the overall delivery and reporting requirements of the business. The planning methodology is detailed in the Planning and Scheduling Handbook (shared as part of the learning legacy) and has been fundamental in enabling the development of an integrated delivery schedule and consistent reporting for the programme, supporting effective decision making by senior management.

    Having access to current information is key on any programme. Crossrail developed an interactive Planning Page on the intranet such that the Planning reports and data were widely available across the programme.

    This webinar aims to discuss Crossrail’s overall approach to planning including: Schedule development and base-lining, Organisation, Schedule Structure, Software, Schedule Risk Analysis, Communication & the Planning Page
