The majority of a single project is spent managing and monitoring and being able to properly estimate and assess is a must.

Now that you have learned how to develop a project management plan, it's time to put that plan into action. This course will present you with a variety of tools and processes for ensuring adequate project controls including: scope, risk, procurement, cost, quality and schedule within the costs or Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB).

Project managers will learn to make informed and fact based decisions derived from established and insightful project controls such as necessary immediate project decisions or corrective actions during the project execution phase. Output and analysis of a variety of project monitoring and control techniques will equip you to make quick and sound project decisions, aiding your projects and enterprise.

While monitoring your projects, managing stakeholder expectations and interests need to be kept in mind. This course gets you ready to manage stakeholder expectations that will help your projects run smoothly.
