Business English tip: are you running ahead or behind schedule?

Are you running ahead or behind schedule?

To be behind schedule means to be later than planned or expected, e.g. “Everybody was sick at work so the project ran behind (late) schedule”.

To be ahead of schedule means to be earlier than planned or expected, e.g. “The sale will help us to repay the loan ahead (sooner) of schedule”.
