Full workshops content:

Projects are investments so is important to ensure that the right projects are being selected and that they are delivering value for money. By using proven processes for integrating project scope, risk, cost and schedule project teams can achieve improved project communication and cost management. Effective cost management involves the processes of project risk analysis, estimating and earned value management.
These processes can provide a single source of the truth for project progress and forecasts and can be applied to any project methodology including agile. This workshop will introduce you to cost engineering and explain the simple processes needed in order implement effective cost management on your projects. 
 

Appreciate:
  • The interests and requirements of Project stakeholders.
  • The key elements of Estimating and Project Control.
  • The importance of Project Control in procurement and contracts.
  • The process for becoming a Certified Cost Professional (CCP) 
Understand:
  • The asset lifecycle and the project lifecycle.
  • Project Assurance and risk-based decision making.

Coming Soon

Engineering projects are notorious for optimism bias and schedule overruns. In order to overcome these problems, it is vital to have effective planning and scheduling processes in place and competent professionals to implement these processes. Project planning and scheduling includes developing, monitoring, updating, forecasting and analysing integrated project schedules. By using proven processes for integrating project scope, risk, cost and schedule project teams can achieve improved project communication and planning. This workshop will introduce you to project planning and scheduling and explain the simple processes needed in order implement effective planning and scheduling for your projects.
