Introduction

This course focuses on how to deliver reliable estimates that can result in significant savings later in the project life. To develop reliable cost and schedule estimates is one of the critical management skills and is addressed in this course.

Every project needs good estimates during the design and early conceptual stages of a proposed project, and if they are not delivered it is one of the reasons for project failure. The decision to proceed with a project is often based almost exclusively on early conceptual estimates, and these estimates provide the basis for the cash flow projections and schedule forecasts during the project feasibility.

This course will feature:

  • Gaining knowledge of techniques used in project estimating, from the conceptual stage to the final detailed estimate
  • Understanding the different types of estimates used to accurately and progressively estimate project costs and schedule
  • Identifying risk sources and minimize their impact and learn how to sustain project momentum
  • Developing effective performance monitoring and control systems
  • An integrated approach to scope, time, resources and cost management into a dynamic and manageable model

Objectives

  • Maintain continuous project performance and delivery control
  • Accurately estimate and allocate project costs and resources
  • Measure, forecast and control project performance by employing earned value techniques
  • Manage and mitigate schedule, cost, scope, and resource risks associated with the project
  • Develop a project recovery plan for budget and schedule overruns
