Planning and Control
Once a project has been set up correctly, the work needs to be planned, executed and controlled in response to events. In order to do this effectively, it is necessary to be familiar with a range of tools that assist in the successful implementation of the plan.
This intensive one-day training course builds on the fundamentals taught in our Project Management Introduction course. It takes delegates through the remaining three stages of the project lifecycle: planning, execution, and termination, providing the knowledge required for the technical aspects of managing a project.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is intended for those who understand the conceptual phase of a project’s life cycle, including setting goals, creating a vision statement, and creating the Statement of Work. They should have attended our Setting Up Projects For Success course or be fully familiar with the subjects it covers.
By the end of the day, delegates will be able to:
- Identify your project's tasks and resources
- Order tasks using the Work Breakdown Structure
- Schedule tasks effectively
- Use basic planning tools such as a Gantt chart, PERT diagram, and network diagram
- Prepare a project budget
- Modify the project budget and schedule to meet targets
