The science of delay analysis is something you can learn in a book; the "art" comes from what is learned through practice. That's why it is important for delay experts to stay active in projects.

I remember in one of my first dispute resolution cases, almost 25 years ago, a construction attorney I was working with told me, "You guys are half science and half voodoo." The term “voodoo”, he explained, was a reference to the expertise of pulling something out of nothing, which I think he considered somewhat valuable.
Encore Group employees recently attended the 2019 Construction Scheduling Claims Conference hosted this year in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada. Everyone in attendance participated in software training, business development seminars, and team building exercises.
