Advanced Topics, Managing Risk & Fixing Tough Projects
Modern Project Management is based upon a series of sensible steps to identify, specify, organize and track the activities of complex innovations. The aim is to produce predictable outcomes with control of budget, schedule and risk.
Sometimes that works; often it doesn’t. There usually are numerous bumps in the road, some of them substantial. The process can be frustrating, exhausting and ultimately disappointing. Depending upon your standards, the project failure rate in all fields runs from 30 to 70 percent.
It doesn’t have to be that way. When Project Managers effectively engage the real issues of their projects in a timely fashion, they produce quality results, on time and within budget.
This two-day interactive workshop engages participants in an examination of the workplace realities that people must deal with, and the process essentials they must adapt and practice amid uncertainties and changing circumstances.
Major topics are:
The six-stage process for planning and organizing a successful project:
Establishing the foundation
Organizing the Project Team
Conducting the Work Breakdown Structure process
Specifying and assigning the Project tasks; installing Quality Management
Setting the Project Schedule and identifying the Critical Path
Establishing management plans for risk, communication and resources
