- Course Outline
Regain control when you are behind schedule, over budget, under quality, and beyond the scope.
Learn how to get an out-of-control project back under control through effective project rescue techniques. This course teaches realistic analysis and control techniques to help you identify the root cause of your problems, analyze the potential solutions, and select the solution that will rescue your project. You'll learn to manage the important measures of your project's health, monitor them, and take action to keep the project on track.
As part of the project rescue exercise, you'll learn to master techniques for identifying unrealistic expectations and renegotiating commitments. You'll practice communicating effectively with stakeholders to ensure that they all understand the problems, the actions that need to be taken, and the project's progress as you regain control. Through hands-on exercises, you'll troubleshoot and recover a project during the class. In just three days, you will learn the process, work with the tools and templates, and practice the techniques that will enable you to quickly put your own project back on track. You'll leave the course with a proven recovery strategy that can be implemented on all projects, regardless of size and scope.
Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
