targets more effectively.
Project managers are expected to handle or manage various types
of contracts with owners and vendors whilst managing their projects. In the
Critical Path Method of scheduling, the project's deadlines are at high risk
if floats are not managed properly. As float gives some flexibility in
scheduling the resources, very often the question comes, who owns the float?
This presentation is aimed at identifying the possible stakeholders
to it, analysing the possible ownership claims of various stakeholders of the
project and suggesting a few possible solutions.
