About this course:

Construction Professionals find it challenging to achieve the required results on their construction projects as the typical construction site can be quite complex, not only in the technical sense but also because the various professional disciplines must work in unison as a team. This 3-day course will enable you to meet the challenges of managing Construction and Engineering projects. Based on the principles of the PMBOK® Guide (edition 6) and the Construction Extension to the PMBOK® Guide (2016 edition), it aims to introduce project managers to the best practices to be followed when managing projects in the construction and engineering environment. If you want to manage your project like a professional, then this course is a must. And remember – you earn CPD points while you learn.

What will I learn during this course:

• Project assessment to support the evaluation of the feasibility of new products or services.
• Identification and management of key deliverables to manage the achievement of project goals.
• Stakeholder management in order to manage expectations and maintain support for the project.
• Risks, assumptions, and constraints management to maintain an implementation strategy.
• Risk management in order to manage the impact of threats and opportunities on the project.
• Project charter approval to formalize the project manager authority and acceptance for the project.
• Project requirements management in order to establish detailed project deliverables.
• Subsidiary management plan development in order to manage all aspects influencing a project.
• Project management plan approval and implementation to meet project requirements.
• Change control and corrective action management to ensure project goals and business needs alignment.
• Information management in order to keep stakeholders engaged and informed.
• Project performance management in order to manage any variances and corrective actions.
• Lessons learned management in order to enable continuous improvement.
• Final project acceptance in order to confirm that project scope and deliverables were achieved.
• Financial, legal, and administrative closure in order ensure transfer of liability.
• Project documents and materials archiving for potential use in future projects and audits.
