  • PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition: 13 - Estimating and Budgeting Project Costs

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This course focuses on project cost management - determining the scope of a project, how it will be funded, and the steps that will be taken to ensure that funds appropriated for the project are managed and used correctly

    Project cost management is perhaps the most comprehensive knowledge area regarding determining the scope of a project, how it will be funded, and the steps that will be taken to ensure that funds appropriated for the project are managed and used correctly. Essential to every good plan are the thoughts and processes that will enable the plan to proceed. Cost management drives project deliverables in line with project constraints. For example, if project costs are limited, a project manager may have to scale back on subject matter experts. If the cost of quality is higher than expected, the project manager needs to realign project deliverables to ensure the level of quality delivers against requirements. This course provides an in-depth look at the processes associated with cost management. (Intermediate – 1.75 hours).

  • PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition: 10 - Developing and Controlling the Project Schedule

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    In this Developing and Controlling the Project Schedule course, you will learn how iterative revisions and maintenance of the schedule are tasks that the project manager must adhere to for the life of the project.

    Developing the schedule of a project is the product of analyzing activities like sequence, duration, resource requirements, and project constraints. Scheduling tools typically assimilate data regarding the analysis provided to promote a project schedule. Activities such as plan, start and completion dates, milestones and dependencies are among the outputs provided by scheduling tools. The project schedule can then become the project's baseline for tracking purposes. In Developing and Controlling the Project Schedule, you will learn how iterative revisions and maintenance of the schedule are tasks that the project manager must adhere to for the life of the project.

  • PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition: 9 - Defining and Sequencing Project Activities

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    The Defining and Sequencing Project Activities course discusses the concept of time management and how it permits the project manager and team to develop a schedule by which project activities will be managed.

    Time management is a knowledge area that takes into the consideration project constraints that pertain to time. It incorporates all the processes that are required to ensure the effective and timely completion of projects. The processes that make up project time management occur at least once within every project, in one or more of the project phases. These processes also overlap and interact with processes from the other knowledge areas to help develop and deliver components of a project. The concept of time management permits the project manager and team to develop a schedule by which project activities will be managed. Depending upon the size, scale, and scope of a project, scheduling may be an activity that could take one resource less than a day to complete or, for more complex projects, may require scheduling software to ensure that activities and resources are synchronized throughout the life cycle of the project. (Intermediate – 1 hour).
