EP4MSSC2 Managing Scope, Schedule, and Cost
Delivering a project within the given constraints as scope, time and cost are fundamental issues for ensuring success. Whether delivering a new gas pipeline, a building or a nuclear plant, all projects require constant monitoring and controlling to meet their objectives. By identifying early warning indicators, you will gain greater insight into potential risk areas and take the necessary corrective actions to keep the project under control.
This course provides a structured approach for project planning and control, by going beyond project management fundamentals and applies a variety of techniques to balance the competing demands of monitoring scope, schedule, and cost. It uses industry best practices to teach the latest tools and techniques.
Learn how to establish the performance measurement baseline and gain proficiency in the tools and techniques used to compare actual work accomplished against established plans. Determine how best to plan project scope based on stakeholder budget and schedule constraints. Be proactive and in control of your project by implementing cost and schedule management.
