Improving accuracy of project estimates and integrating scope, schedule & cost management for successful project delivery

This programme are endorsed and given accreditation by PMI (PMI members are entitled to claim 21 PDUs for CCR) and ECSA – CPD accredited by Engineering Council of South Africa and (ECSA members are entitled to claim 3 CPD credits).

After projects enter the execution phase, the emphasis of the project manager’s effort changes from planning to controlling the work. Control of the project is most effective when the control process integrates scope management with cost and schedule management. In order to properly control the project, it must be thoroughly planned and the metrics well defined. Once the detailed planning is complete and baselined, the most effective way to control is by using Earned Value Management. But EVM has its own costs and overhead associated with it and may not be worthwhile for small or medium-size projects. For these projects, you can create solid integrated control processes without setting up an EVM system. This course will show you how to control projects both with EVM and without EVM. The class approach is highly interactive with a variety of exercises supplementing the presentation material. Calculators will be needed.
