Project schedules are often considered the core of project management. Developing a good schedule and keeping the project on track are critical to successfully completing the project. Yet, a majority of projects in each industry sector run behind schedule and are delivered late. The project manager is judged by how successfully they can complete the project on schedule. If the project is late, was the project manager doing a poor job or was the schedule bad to start with? In this 2-day Masterclass, delegates will learn how to develop an accurate schedule and to track against it during the execution phase of the project.

A risk is a possible future event that can impact how successfully the project will be completed. If the project manager and the project sponsor or steering committee is serious about project success, they will spend the time and money to identify risks, rank their seriousness, and mitigate them. Research shows that a majority of project risks come from stakeholders. By attending this 2-Day Masterclass, delegates will learn how to identify risks more efficiently, rank them, and reduce their impact. Strong risk management will improve the project success’ possibility.
