Planning
Klarity.Work is the only platform to plan and manage a project with uncertainties, delayed decisions and non-substitutable resources
World is a scary place
Plan accordingly
Use а range instead of exact value
If you know a task will take 3-4 weeks, then just say so. Don't make things up just because you project planner prefers it.
Gradually improve the forecasting accuracy
As you learn more about the tasks and as the project progresses, reduce the uncertainties. Keep the continuous re-assessment of all future tasks.
Communicate the uncertainties, don't hide them

Integrate the delayed decisions into your plan
Implement, outsource, or buy the product module? Laminate or hardwood? Simple HTML or dynamic Canvas?
Often a decision could not be made before the project starts. The depend on some other tasks, like research, design, or testing. Then the decision determines the duration or even existense of the subsequent tasks.
Plan resources in a new way
Non-substitutable resource
Very human nature of the resources with the mix of interchangeable and unique elements. The task requires Mary and John, as they already are familiar with the problem, plus 3 other developers, could be any.
Automatic resource allocation
Just mark the task, it can perform any of the required category of resources, and the platform itself will allocate resources in tasks so that the resources are workloaded optimally and there are no resource conflicts, if possible.
