Project Management



 

Winning Project Management
In this introductory class you will develop the skills to build a sturdy project plan and to manage the project using that plan. You will learn how to balance the triple constraints of scope, cost, and schedule with the other project imperatives of quality, risk, stakeholder satisfaction, and business profit.  Participants will use their own real projects to develop a scope statement, work breakdown structure, network logic diagram, and resource assignments. Through the interactive game of Herding Cats, everyone will manage a project, revise a plan based on milestone achievements, assess risk, and re-plan to accommodate changes that occur. Topics include progress measurement techniques such as buffer management and earned value, status reporting, and how to manage a team of creative individual contributors. The program includes the latest terminology from PMI's PMBOK Guide.  Note: This is NOT a PMP exam prep course. Tuition includes class materials. Pre-req: Students should have experience with working on actual projects or be interested in managing projects in the future.  Instructor: Jack Nevison from New Leaf Project Management.
