An Interactive 5-Day Online Training Course

Applying Project Control

Project Monitoring, Reporting & Control

Course Introduction

As business and organizational environments become increasingly complex, it is critical that work initiatives are controlled effectively. Management need to ensure that the correct work is being performed throughout the entire lifecycle of a project. How many times have we encountered situations where project timeline and budget overruns have occurred? Furthermore, what happen when the reasons that motivated the selection of a project have altered - are projects set up to recognize that they must alter their requirements and deliverables in order to meet changing stakeholder needs. Effective management of these situations is achieved through the application of control mechanisms that include ongoing monitoring of project performance and effective governance structures that support clear reporting to senior decision makers.

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day Oxford Management Applying Project Control online training course will prepare delegates to recognize the need for effective control mechanisms and also how to apply these mechanisms using standard tools and techniques.
