Project Cost Management , June 12, 2020
This webinar will give the participant an overview of project scheduling. To develop a definitive schedule, one must first determine the scope of the project. This requires discussions with key stakeholders, suppliers, end users, and clients. Further, maintaining the schedule (i.e. preventing scope creep) is an important part of managing a project. The student will be able to utilize these schedule techniques upon return to their current work role. The course content is in compliance with the PMBOK© (Project Management Body of Knowledge) as published by the Project Management Institute.
The webinar will be illustrated with real examples and reinforced with individual exercises. It will also illustrate how projects schedules align with company strategic plans and can impact costs.
- Obtain a high comfort level in developing a project schedule from the WBS (Work Breakdown Structure)
- Apply earned value techniques to determine project schedule status
- Discuss how schedule slips impact the budget
- Know scheduling terms and how to determine the critical path
- Apply duration estimates and float to project activities
- Recognize project dependencies and schedule impacts
