Introduction

As business and organizational environments become increasingly complex, it is critical that work initiatives are controlled effectively. Management need to ensure that the correct work is being performed throughout the entire lifecycle of a project. How many times have we encountered situations where project timeline and budget overruns have occurred? Furthermore, what happen when the reasons that motivated the selection of a project have altered - are projects set up to recognize that they must alter their requirements and deliverables in order to meet changing stakeholder needs. Effective management of these situations is achieved through the application of control mechanisms that include ongoing monitoring of project performance and effective governance structures that support clear reporting to senior decision makers.

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day training course will prepare delegates to recognize the need for effective control mechanisms and also how to apply these mechanism using standard tools and techniques.

This training course will highlight:

  • Usage of charters to control project selection, approval and sponsor/pm alignment
  • Development of key plans in order to establish the fundamental controlling structure of the triple constraints: Scope, Time and Budget
  • Using baseline plans and the triple constraints to control project change
  • Overview of the adaptive lifecycle used to control very volatile situations
  • Effective project progress reporting using the Earned Value Management system

Objectives

This 5-day training course will enable delegates to appreciate the concept of project control through well-structured project management governance and to improve their ability to control their projects by learning how to apply effectively project management techniques.

 At the end of this training course, you will learn to:

  • Establish clear project governance structures that support the involvement of senior management and enable effective reporting and control of “the big picture”
  • Engage effectively with stakeholders in order to manage expectations around project objectives
  • Develop key baseline plans that can be used to control project progress
  • Control project execution by using standard monitoring and change management practices
  • Propose the emergent adaptive project lifecycle in volatile environments where effective control is difficult to achieve using the traditional predictive lifecycle approach

Training Methodology

The facilitator will introduce each of the core topics using a lecture format. Presentations are supported by reinforcement exercises related to case studies in order to emphasize the application of theory in real-world project settings. Delegates explore the fundamentals of project management so that they may appreciate how a project management framework supports effective control processes. The training course then explores specific practices used to control a project throughout its lifecycle.

Organisational Impact

The Applying Project Control training course helps organizations to benefit from:

  • Excelling in project management practice and increasing organizational maturity
  • Equipping employees in refining abilities for project leadership and management
  • Becoming more flexible and adaptive by using different project lifecycles
  • Gaining confidence from customers by having project professionals capable of applying consistent generally accepted project management techniques
  • Improved governance using clear reporting structures
