Project Management, Scheduling & Compliance: Planning, Scheduling & Control


Covering the entire project life cycle, thisconference is based on the best practices found in the Project Management Institute's A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). In this programme you will learn how to:

  • Establish and accomplish goals that are linked directly to stakeholder needs.
  • Utilize tried and proven project management tools to get the job done on time, within budget and accordance with requirements.
  • Work through a proactive approach to risk that will give you a clear understanding of both qualitative and quantitative risk analysis.


  • Establish project goals and objectives that are directly linked to stakeholders’ needs.
  • Develop and use work breakdown structures.
  • Develop realistic and measurable objectives to ensure positive results.
  • Estimate project time and costs using proven techniques.
  • Establish a project control system and monitor progress.
  • Use a practical, step-by-step process to manage project risk.
  • Identify threats and opportunities to your project, and weigh their relative value.
  • Identify and overturn the psychological barriers to risk in stakeholders.


Project management knowledge, skills, tools and techniques are taught through case studies, experiential exercises and practical examples that can used immediately to improve your project results.


This conference addresses both the “hard” skills and the “soft” skills needed by project managers to plan and control projects. The “hard” skills are the technical “mechanics” of managing a project, while the “soft” skills deal with the human issues, and ultimately, it is people who deliver results on projects.

The goal of this conference is to assist organizations in developing project managers who are aware of the strategic importance that project management plays in the achievement of the mission of their organization, and their role in leading the way to better performance and profits.
