At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Utilize the work breakdown structure approach to identifying and decomposing the works scope to serve as the foundation to the planning and execution process
  • Based on the WBS, develop realistic estimates for expected resource utilization and associated effort (time) and cost
  • Establish a Project Performance Measurement Baseline for use in comparing expectations (resource, time, cost) to actuals at any level of the WBS
  • Implement variance analysis techniques to facilitate realistic assessment of root cause for variances AND techniques for projecting/forecasting current status to quantify variance impact the future status
