Construction Project Management

Description

One of the most challenging responsibilities of Project Engineers / Architects / Managers in every project is managing the competing constraints of scope, schedule, cost and quality in meeting project goals. Since each project is unique, the approach to managing these constraints may vary depending on the stakeholder's needs, environmental factors, organizational structure, and other relevant project parameters. This course will provide the appropriate project management processes, tools and techniques in addressing these concerns based on international standards presented by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

This course encompasses the five (5) project management process groups of initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and control, and closing within the nine (9) knowledge areas of Integration, Scope, Schedule, Cost, Quality, Human Resource, Communication, Risk, and Procurement Management.

ENTRY COMPETENCIES of Participants (Prerequisites):

Project management is a management philosophy that could be applied to either technical and non-technical projects. But for this Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program, target participants are registered and licensed professionals who are assigned/designated to handle projects as PICs (project-in-charge), PMs (project managers), Construction Managers, Supervisors, and other Professionals handling or involved in projects. While the number of years is not required in the practice, it is imperative that the participant should have an adequate knowledge on the business processes and procedures of the industry he/she is into to be able to define in details the project requirements with regard to scope, schedule, cost and quality.

COURSE OBJECTIVES/LEARNING OUTCOMES:

The technical complexity of modern construction and the emphasis on “timely completion”, “within budget” and “compliance to specifications” call for competent knowledge, skills and performance in the “high-risk” construction industry. This course will enhance the skills of the participants in managing projects by providing them the structured approach, processes, tools and techniques in managing the scope, schedule, cost and quality, and teaching them to protect the project baselines from variations through the conduct of Risk Management, Contract Management, Communications Management, Human Resource Management and Stakeholders Management.

Competencies to be gained from the course program include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Participants will be able to analyze and understand where the scope of the project is coming from. Knowledge of the project requirements, assumptions, and constraints is necessary to be able to develop the scope baseline (WBS).
  2. Participants will be able to identify the resources needed for the project.
  3. Participants will be able to develop the Project Schedule based on the Resource Loading, and effectively monitor and manage the schedule to prevent slippage.
  4. Participants will be able to aggregate the cost of every activity, determine the project cost, create the budget and control cost-overruns using the S-curve.
  5. Participants will be able to learn the processes of managing the quality requirements of the project.
  6. Participants will be able to set monitoring controls to manage variations in scope, schedule, cost, and quality.
  7. Participants will learn the processes of conducting Risk Management; identifying and categorizing risks, and creating risk responses to meet project objectives.
  8. Participants will be able to define the advantages and disadvantages of every type of contract and learn how to administer contracts effectively.
  9. Participants will learn the processes of developing and managing project team members.
  10. Participants will be able to identify all the stakeholders of their projects and how to effectively communicate with them throughout the project life cycle.
  11. Participants will be able to deliver projects within the bounds of scope, schedule and cost with the use of globally accepted project management tools and techniques.
  12. Participants would acquire technical training hours necessary in taking the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam since PMI standards will be used during the training.
