Taking Action

Taking Action

During this course, you'll be "taking action" by tracking project performance and identifying potential variances that indicate your project may be out of alignment with the plan.  We'll focus on managing the project's execution, implementing appropriate project controls and eventually closing the project.  Students will gain understanding of Earned Value Management and its use in objectively measuring project status and forecasting completion.

Not all projects go according to plan.  Sometimes "taking action" is analyzing project performance to determine if recovery is needed to realign the project.  Students will learn about determining recovery options based on project drivers.  This class contains several "ThinkShop" exercises and ends with a full day case study to practice what you've learned.

Course objectives include:

  • Develop project performance measurement criteria
  • Evaluate project status
  • Understand Earned Value Management
  • Develop realignment (recovery) strategies
  • Evaluate project recovery scenarios
  • Terminate the project in an orderly manner
