The focus of this one day Project Management - The Basics workshop is to provide a basic introduction to project management and to improve your project management skills. People often become project managers by default and soon realize that the skills they require are not those in which they have been trained. This workshop will equip you with practical tools, skills, and competencies needed to manage your design and construction projects. Using lecture, discussion, and case studies, the focus will be on practical applications and techniques for immediate implementation and project results.
Topics discussed will include:
- What makes a great project manager
- Difference between a project manager and a project engineer
- Guidelines to follow for every project
- Duties of a project engineer/project manager
- Scope/Schedule/Budget/Resources Relationship
- The Project Life Cycle
- Decision making
- Budgets and the Estimate Matrix
- Planning and the Work Breakdown Structure
- Scope Development
- Risk Analysis
- Measuring project performance and Earned Value Analysis
