Course Description

Course Description

Project management is the process of leading the work of a team to achieve all project goals within the given constraints. It involves the planning and organization of a company's resources to move a specific task, event, or duty towards completion. It can involve a one-time project or an ongoing activity, and resources managed include personnel, finances, technology, and intellectual property

A major challenge when planning and managing a project is project estimating.

Project estimation is the process of analyzing available data to predict the time, cost, and resources needed to complete a project. Estimating is an inseparable part of project management services which have a financial component.

Project estimation techniques help project managers accurately estimate essential elements, such as cost and scope, within their projects. These techniques can be used to properly plan for resource allocation. These estimation techniques provide better forecasts to clients and more accurately budget the funds and resources they need for project success.

In this online CPE webinar, speaker Raymond Sheen will discuss different estimating techniques along with their advantages and disadvantages. In addition, project constraints that impact estimating accuracy will be identified.

Many of the project activities are unique or at least significantly different than what has been done on previous projects. In addition, project team members have different skillsets and experiences to draw upon. These all contribute to an aspect of project management that is seldom accurate. 

This online CE/CPE webinar will also include examples illustrating the challenges and best practices.
