How do we make sure that our projects are under control? This is the age-old question that is raised by management since before the pyramids were under construction! Controlling projects involves much more than managing project execution – it is also vital to have effective governance structures in place to enable senior management to provide effective project selection, support, abandonment or change and closure. Not only that but within the project work itself, many people might imagine project control to be all about managing the implementation portion of a project. However, while this is very important, effective control is enabled by how projects are launched and how they are planned.
The Project Management Institute (PMI©) updates the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK©) on a regular basis so that this reference book reflects the most current generally accepted practices used across industries to manage and control projects. As a PMI© registered education provider, Glomacs have built their PM044 course using these tools and techniques so delegates are made well aware of the tools and terminology used by this ANSI project management standard.
As the project manager of globally distributed teams building international supply chain products, Dr. Michael Lane PMP has applied rigorous disciplined processes to effectively control complex project environments. He brings many years of such experience to bear in teaching this course as delegates work through a reinforcement case study designed to allow them to reflect on the usefulness of different controlling techniques. As an added bonus, while consideration of project control is normally associated with the predictive or plan-based lifecycle, delegates are also encouraged to reflect upon emerging approaches to control volatile environments using adaptive project management.
Glomacs helps you to apply proven project control techniques in their specialized course: PM044 – Managing Project Control. To know more about the course and to join one of the sessions, please contact our Training & Competencies Counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org
