Develop effective measures for scheduling and controlling projects as you put the tools of project management to work. In this course you’ll focus on managing the constraints you face in any project: limits on time, human resources, materials, budget and specifications. Discover proven ways to work within your identified constraints, without letting predefined limits curtail creativity or innovation.
From the opening morning, you’ll get hands-on experience, practicing your skills in building project requirements and the work breakdown structure. You’ll learn a sound, logical framework for scheduling and controlling project activities. And you’ll master techniques for estimating, forecasting, budgeting, monitoring, controlling, analyzing and reporting costs and interpreting the meaning of earned-value data.
Individual and small-group exercises feature scenarios that help hone these skills, and a comprehensive toolkit provides practical field guidance. The course materials also include comprehensive reference materials specific to each unit of the course.
Discover a number of sophisticated tools and techniques that you can use to manage time and costs effectively on every type of project. This is one of the program’s most popular courses; classes fill up quickly, so register early.
