Learning Objectives: 

When you start entering dates for tasks, you are forcing the task to start or end on the specified date regardless of subsequent changes that would otherwise affect the task's place in the overall project plan. Think about it.

In this session, I will walk you through on the common reasons for typing dates for tasks and the alternative options to achieve optimal scheduling flexibility.

At the end of this session, you will be able to do the following tasks.

1. Explain the reasons of entering dates
2. Predict the constraint used when typing dates
3. Differentiate the constraint types
4. Evaluate the effect of constraints on critical path
5. Choose a right constraint for the task
6. Choose deadline over constraints
