Project Scheduling and Control

Free Webinar

Edith Cowan University School of Business and Law is running a free 30 minute webinar on project scheduling and controls.

Project Controls are critical to successful project delivery and provide the opportunity to clearly communicate what your project will do, when it will be done and to not only communicate the status of the project but also to forecast performance.

This webinar covers areas including:

  • Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) types and creation – an overview
  • Estimating techniques – how long, how much, how many
  • Network diagrams – linking the work and identifying the critical path
  • Critical path and Float – schedule to preserve cashflow without impacting delivery dates
  • Schedule creation – putting it all together and setting a baseline
  • Schedule compression – doing work more in less time
  • Progress reporting – metrics that count
  • Earned Value Management - simplified in 5 minutes
  • Project performance forecasting – using Earned Value Management
  • WBS - integration into project closeout

Join us for this session on Wednesday 29 July at 5:30pm – 6:30pm WST.
