Managing technical cost and schedule staff is different than other groups of staff. Cost and schedule staff have unique technical requirements, as well as normal leadership and managerial needs. This paper describes a unique 14-step personnel development system that will clarify staff roles, responsibilities and expectations. It is designed to eliminate stress on staff and managers by implementing rather normal every day actions and is relatively simple to implement. The system does require discipline; however, it will maintain a consistent rhythm of growth and development of staff members. The system is written in order of complexity and is a path of continual growth. The steps are meant to be mastered in order to achieve operational excellence in cost and schedule control.
