Two common, major areas of project overrun are time and money. In this course, you gain solid schedule and budget-management skills. You learn how to define the work and calculate a realistic critical path. You establish a budget baseline by allocating resources to tasks, aggregating project budgets and quantifying risk. By setting up Earned Value Analysis, you will be able to report on project status and forecast future performance.

  • Estimate tasks and aggregate to the project level
  • Calculate critical path to determine project duration
  • Determine total project costs
  • Quantify risk to produce a defensible baseline
  • Leverage best practices to significantly improve project outcomes
