The Project Management course aims to give the trainee an understanding of the fundamentals of Project Management.
You will learn about the Project Management Process, before moving on to features such as:
- fundamentals of project management
- characteristics of a project
- project initiation and scope planning
- scope definition, verification, and change control
- time management
- schedule development and control
- resource identification and cost approximating
- budgeting and cost control
This course is designed for trainees new to Project management.
There are no skills prerequisites for this course.
Duration: 1 Day
This course has only one level
In this course participants will:
- Identify the features and attributes of a project, as well as steps and variables of the project management process.
- Identify the effects of the environment, various socioeconomic and organisational issues, and organisational structure on a project; and identify the critical functions, necessary skills, responsibilities, and challenges of a project manager.
- Identify the components of project scope; gain project authorisation; use common project selection methods; write an end-deliverable description and a project charter; determine the actions integral to scope planning; write a scope statement; follow a scope management plan; and prevent scope creep.
- Identify the process and benefits of scope definition and verification; develop the work breakdown structure (WBS) and the work package; identify the types of information that stakeholders need in order to verify the project scope; identify actions involved in controlling changes; and identify the role of a scope change control system.
- Identify the components of time management; identify the purpose of activity definition and sequencing; recognize different diagramming techniques; identify the factors affecting activity duration; and identify techniques for estimating activity duration.
- Describe schedule development; use mathematical analysis techniques for schedule development; identify the purpose of schedule control; and describe the importance of schedule adherence.
- Identify the necessary project resources by using a WBS and other tools; identify resource types and assign resources; make cost approximations; assess the effect of risk and activity duration on cost estimates; and apply cost estimating techniques.
- Use capital budgeting and depreciation methods for project budgeting; control project costs; calculate cost and schedule variance; and compute a project’s estimate at completion (EAC) and variance at completion (VAC).
