Project Planning, Scheduling and Control (Level 2)

Get a solid grounding in project management planning and control methods with this comprehensive course using proven project management techniques.
Project Planning, Scheduling and Control gives you the foundation, tools and proven techniques to plan, manage and control each stage of the project life cycle; to work within organizational and cost constraints; to establish and accomplish goals that are linked directly to stakeholder needs; to get the best out of your project team; and to utilize tried and proven project management tools to get the job done on time, within budget and accordance with requirements. You will work through a proactive approach to risk, both threats and opportunities, which will give you a clear understanding of both a qualitative and a quantitative view of risk analysis.
Covering the entire project life cycle, this course is based on the best practices found in the Project Management Institute’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).

Project management knowledge, skills, tools and techniques are taught through case studies, experiential exercises and practical examples that can used immediately to improve your project results.

Programme Outline
This program addresses both the “hard” skills and the “soft” skills needed by project managers to plan and control projects. The “hard” skills are the technical “mechanics” of managing a project, while the “soft” skills deal with the human issues, and ultimately, it is people who deliver results on projects.

The goal of this programme is to assist organizations in developing project managers who are aware of the strategic importance that project management plays in the achievement of the mission of their organization, and their role in leading the way to better performance and profits.
