May - Virtual Chapter Event


We all know the basics of scheduling: 1) Build a to-do list; 2) Determine the sequence of tasks; 3) Estimate tasks; 4) Commit arithmetic & calculate end date

We also know from experience that this doesn’t work as well as we think it should.  Most projects are hard pressed to meet their schedule goals, why?

It turns out that math has something to do with it.  In this non-boring presentation, Payson Hall will reveal the mathematical truth behind what our intuition tells us about traditional schedules and offer insights to improve estimates and schedules going forward.


Payson Hall is a former U.S. Army Ranger and consulting project manager for Catalysis Group, Inc. in Sacramento.  Formally trained as a software engineer, Payson’s early career included software development, hardware/software system integration.  As his career progressed, his role shifted to include increasing project management responsibilities. 

Today he coaches project managers, teaches project management skills, consults, and performs project reviews in a variety of fields, including transportation, communication, software development, hardware development, education, financial services, social services, and healthcare.

Payson has consulted on a variety of projects in both the public and private sectors throughout North America and Europe during his 40-year professional career.  He has published over 100 project management articles, developed numerous project management and problem-solving classes, written a book on project sponsorship, and is sought after as a conference speaker who specializes in demystifying project management topics and communicating important ideas while entertaining audiences.
