Every well defined project has a clear starting and endpoint. In-between, consultants or contractors have to fulfil tasks to reach the objective. Besides allocating the proper duration for an activity and whether or not there is any flexibility (float or slack), a clear insight is needed in the dependency between tasks .The sequence of activities that holds no room for contingencies (i.e. change affecting time or cost), is the critical path. This path is guarded of all.


Decisions regarding the time constraint usually affects one or more of the others, makes monitoring and evaluating progress an important task for project management. Clients need up-to-date information and a proper appraisal of consequences of possible changes to make decisions. The well-known bar chart (Gantt chart) is a relatively simple planning tool. Visualizing the critical path, which is particularly important for complex projects, cannot be done adequately. The best planning tool for this, is the network diagram. Reflecting the diversity in size and complexity of projects, ToornendPartners applies various types of planning, each purpose-built to fit the project's and the client's needs.
