Accurate schedules are central to ensuring effective utilization of resources. Yet, according to a recent global project performance report, approximately 50% of business projects fail to be delivered within the estimated schedule. By focusing on behavioral biases in project planning, improving the accuracy of project schedules and experimentation, this course demonstrates how experimental economics methods can uncover hidden inefficiencies in project management.
