Training course overview

Time and Money are two of the most precious commodities in organisational life and are often two of the key success criteria for projects. Both are often subject to strict and/or tight limits. Neither of them do you get back once they’re gone. This Coventry Academy online training explores how to manage both, balancing them with other important factors such as quality, resources and risk. It examines estimating techniques relevant to different stages of the project’s life, how to derive the overall cost and timescale of the project and how to match that with the required limitations. You will learn how to deal with the uncertainty of estimates, both proactively and reactively, through risk and issue management techniques respectively.
