About this course:Once projects cross their planning stage, the execution phase starts with the inevitable reality of needing to change and update the original plans. Supported with formal baselines for project schedule, cost, quality and resources, the project manager’s key role is to ensure changes against those baselines are made orderly, formally, and effectively. This course focuses on project implementation and the various qualitative and quantitative methods project managers rely on to control and manage their project changes to successfully complete them on-time and within budget. Project changes in one area will necessarily impact other areas, requiring a relentless balancing act among schedule, cost, quality, staffing, and risk-related priorities. This course will also cover tactics to manage the myriad of stakeholders on the project during its implementation and control stages, utilizing an integrated change management approach to minimize negative impacts and maximize positive outcomes.
