We are presenting tools to help you navigate the Covid-19 / Corona Virus crisis. In this initial blog post, we address the need for a comprehensive yet detailed master plan. Developing and communicating this plan is critical to success, and RE&FM is best prepared to take the lead.

Your CPM Schedule is needed ASAP --before your firm's return to work-- to coordinate, schedule, assign, monitor, and document progress. CPM makes scheduling flexible and transparent, and basic versions are easy to build in Excel. Microsoft Project is one of many CPM programs available, offered in several versions and with numerous features.
