This Project Management training course focuses on how to deliver comprehensive reliable plans with time and cost estimates that gives the owner or sponsor of projects, high levels of confidence for project delivery. In addition, the plans need to be realistic with a full view of any risks faced during and after the project lifecycle.

The decision to proceed with a project is based on early, high level conceptual estimates. However, these can be wide ranging and therefore more detailed estimates need to provide the basis for the cash flow projections and schedule forecasts.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Confidently estimate project timescales and costs with appropriate resource management plans
  • Identify, assess and manage schedule, cost, scope and resource risks
  • Understand project performance and control
  • Measure, forecast and control project performance by employing earned value techniques
  • Develop a project recovery plan for budget and schedule overruns
