Seminar Description

Topics: Project Management/Business Analysis

Sub-Topics: Project Management, Scope Management, Time Management/Scheduling

Are you a newly assigned project manager or a project manager who has never attended formal training? If so, this course is for you! Get the practical and insightful knowledge, tools and collaborative techniques you need to initiate, plan, execute, monitor, control and close a project successfully—purposefully achieving the documented benefits.  
Your abilities as a project manager depend on understanding and applying the competencies and structure of project management—especially the inter-relationships between scope, time, cost, quality and risk—and are critical to managing the needs and expectations of key stakeholders throughout the project’s life cycle. Through discussion, facilitation, group interactions and practical exercises, you will understand how to integrate and apply the PMBOK Guide processes to structure and communicate your project(s) in a meaningful manner to influence decision-makers in a proactive vs. reactive manner.  
In this course, you will understand the importance of and how to create and use the primary project documents: Project Charter, Scope Statement, Work Breakdown Structure, Quality Standards, Activity Listing, Critical Path Network Schedule, Risk Register, Project Reviews, and Lessons Learned.

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Define project manager/project sponsor/functional manager/team member roles and responsibilities, and understand the impact of different organizational structures and reward/recognition strategies
  • Document relationships that relate the statement of work (SOW), Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and specifications to each other
  • Identify activities, establish logical relationships, estimate durations and determine critical path activities to ensure efficient scheduling
  • Gain techniques for estimating costs and assigning resources, and acquire methods for measuring earned value and performance
  • Distinguish and apply quality planning, assurance and control methods
  • Learn identification, qualitative and quantification methods, response development strategies and risk control techniques.
  • Communications: Understand the various types of communications and methods for gathering and disseminating project information.
  • Contracting strategies
  • Foster effective communications and feedback among team members, customers, suppliers and managers.
