ACE Project Systems offers various contracting services.
Contracting is either done by Rod Gill or any of the
professional partners Rod is in alliance with.
Some clients have employed contractors with limited
skills in scheduling and Microsoft Project and employed Rod
as a Coach and Mentor to get the contractor up to speed.
This works well where a less skilled project manager or
scheduler is required but higher skills are needed to setup
the main schedules and reporting systems.
Some clients have also used Rod to set up multi-project
reporting systems and processes so they can then better
control and report on, their programs of projects.
With each schedule you will get:
A comprehensive schedule that
communicates how the project will be successfully

what you have do when if finishing on time is important
