@Marcie the projects are scheduled 12-28 months. I have tried and failed to explain that creating a single project with 4000+ task items is a bad idea.

This is great advice, but please tell me Senior Pablo and his Ashton story is not becoming a trend.

@Marcie I've watched this particular manager build his schedules. It starts from my company's project template, and tasks are inserted like the project is a 18 month long todo list. A start and finish date get assigned to the first and last task, next the predecessor tasks get bound, and finally the tasks are assigned durations which seem to not make the schedule invalid. Some of the managers are better than others with their schedules, but the problem is systemic of managers being moved from project to project, each with a little of their own flair left over.

I have a feeling that this is the result of cascading micromanagement now that you mention this.

@Robert i should have mentioned that the scheduling software is based on a 8 hour 'day' so a task with a .13 day duration is actually about 1 hour. In context, this adds up to about 15 hours on my docket today.
