Course Description

One of the most challenging responsibilities of Project Engineers /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 the 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.

Course Objectives

This course will provide the participants the foundation and the structured approach to managing projects in meeting project goals, and do away with the "diskarte" system that commonly leads to project failures. This will, likewise, enhance the skills of the participants with the use of globally accepted best practices and standards in project management, and expose them to the same vocabulary and advocacy with international project management practitioners to achieve business excellence.

  5. Participants will be able to define criteria in measuring and monitoring project deliverables while the project is in progress.
  6. Participants will be able to set controls on every deliverable to be able to manage changes on time, cost, quality and scope.
  7. Participants will be able to close and turn-over the project at the client's and/or management's satisfaction.
  8. Participants will be able to deliver projects within the bounds of time, cost, quality and scope by using specified project management tools and techniques recommended by the Project Management Institute (PMI) as presented in PMBOK 5th Edition (Project Management Body of Knowledge).
