A simulated case study is at the heart of this 5 day program. Delegates will have to use Project Management and Control tools to analyze the case study and make recommendations for future actions. They will review and improve their knowledge of Baseline Management and Earned Value Analysis, Project Tracking, Analysis and Reporting and then use and demonstrate this expertise to accomplish the assignments successfully.
The intent is to have the delegates apply their knowledge by analysing a project that is in trouble. They must determine the source and causes of the problems, what corrective measures may be needed, and prepare reports and recommendations to senior management.
By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:
- Recognise, list and interpret the agreed objectives for the project.
- Understand and define the phases of a project and the roles of a project manager.
- Understand the contribution of improved project planning and control.
- Improve the project management performance of a company using Earned Value Analysis, Estimating, Planning and Risk Analysis.
- Understand the project estimating and risk analysis aspects of project management and improve their own contribution to the project team performance.
- Understand the factors that can influence the success or failure of a project and Key Performance Indices (KPIs).
- Effectively simulate assembling and building a team to complete a project.
- Identify areas of their own leadership skills that need to be enhanced for effective project management and develop an appropriate action plan.
- Understand the contribution of improved project planning and control to the project management performance of a company.
- Understand and improve their use of MS Project for the project planning, execution and controlling stages of the project and helping to systematically monitor and control the identified risks.
The course is five days and begins at 8:30 AM.
The course is aimed at newly promoted and aspiring project managers, project engineers, supervisors and project leaders and other team members who wish to increase their knowledge of, and performance in, the management of projects.
The program assumes that the delegates have a basic knowledge of Baseline Management, Earned Value Analysis, Project Tracking, Analysis and Reporting, but provides a comprehensive review. Delegates are also expected to have prior basic knowledge of MS Windows and they will acquire skills in MS Project during practical exercises with prepared cost and planning and other examples.
