Project Planning,Scheduling & Cost Control Professional

Project Planning, Scheduling & Cost Control Professional

This project management course teaches techniques that will help you plan, implement, and complete projects with desired results on time and within budget. Learn to create clear project missions and goals, accurately estimate project time and costs, employ project quality management, schedule and allocate time-critical resources, and establish feedback systems for optimal project control.

This course provides a structured approach to project planning and management. Project Planning, Scheduling & Cost Control Professional course goes beyond project management fundamentals and applies a variety of techniques to balance the competing demands of scope, schedule, and cost. It uses industry best practices to teach the latest tools and techniques. Learn how to establish the performance measurement baseline (PMB) and gain proficiency in the tools and techniques used to compare actual work accomplished against established plans. Determine how best to plan project scope based on stakeholder budget and schedule constraints. Be proactive and in control of your project by implementing cost and schedule management.

This training course will provide participants with a thorough background in the concepts of Planning and Scheduling Engineering and construction projects.

The course addresses how to identify, monitor, and balance information crucial for the successful management of projects.

We will discuss the development of a baseline performance management plan (PMP)and the timely generation of quantitative

performance comparisons.

The comparisons highlight significant performance departures (“actual vs. baseline”) and allow for preventive and early remedial and

corrective actions.

The Practical sessions will provide hands-on experience.

Workshops create and track sample project from planning phase till controlling phase (updating).

You might be interested in another Project Management programs as a next step.
