This is an ILM Endorsed Seminar. Optional ILM Endorsed Certification carries an assessment component which contributes to measuring learning impact.

Introduction

Countless numbers of projects undertaken by organizations in the private and public sectors significantly overrun the project schedule and budget, and as a consequence fail to achieve the organization’s financial and strategic objectives, often with sizable increases in costs and with substantial financial losses to the organization. Why? This is due mainly to the failure of many project managers to successfully apply the tools and techniques of modern project planning, monitoring, control and progress reporting on their projects.

Objectives

This 5-day seminar will provide you with a proven set of methods, processes, tools and techniques to develop a systematic and dynamic project plan to ensure progressive monitoring and reporting of project progress. This will enable the team to:

  • Integrate scope, time, resources and cost management into a dynamic, manageable plan
  • Develop project network diagrams for CPM and advanced PERT calculations to identify schedule and cost risks
  • Maintain continuous project performance and delivery control
  • Accurately estimate and allocate project costs and resources
  • Measure, forecast and control project performance by employing earned value techniques
  • Compress or accelerate the schedule when required by adverse circumstances
  • Develop a project recovery plan for budget and schedule overruns
  • Produce clear and concise project progress reports

Training Methodology

Delegates will develop advanced project management performance and control skills and knowledge through formal and interactive learning methods. The training seminar includes case studies, group discussion and critical analysis of video material based on actual large construction projects.

Additionally, the seminar does not assume prior knowledge of the topics covered in the course. New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable delegates to progress from the fundamental to the advanced concepts of project planning, scheduling and control.

Personal Impact

This brand new advanced course will significantly enhance the skills and knowledge of delegates and improve their ability to plan, schedule, monitor, control, and report on project progress. The material has been designed to enable delegates to apply all of the material with immediate effect at the office.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for project team leaders, project planning engineers and heads, and senior project control and business services professionals who have the responsibility for planning and controlling project schedules and costs in client and contracting companies.
