Overview:

Introduction:

The Project Scope and Requirements Management program teaches participants to define, manage, and control project scope and requirements effectively. It covers essential processes and techniques for aligning stakeholder needs with project objectives. Participants learn strategies for maintaining scope integrity and minimizing scope-related risks.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the benefits of good project cost control for successful project outcomes.

  • Use best practices to minimize costs and negative impacts.

  • Describe a typical project cost management lifecycle and its significance.

  • Explain the key steps required to improve project estimates, budgeting, and cost baselining.

  • Specify key quantitative measures for determining project performance using Earned Value Management (EVM).

  • Learn about estimating cost techniques, including the Work Breakdown Structure and risk management considerations.

Targeted Audience:

  • Project Managers.

  • Members of Project Offices.

  • Project Sponsors.
