Advanced Project Performance Management

One of the fundamental success factors in project execution is knowing which elements determine real project performance and how to measure them accurately. There is a multitude of metrics that may be measured on any project but, depending on the nature and objectives of the project, only a few of these will establish how well the project is performing.

Projects are usually multi-faceted, meaning they comprise multiple stages, multiple work scopes, and have various interfaces, and as such, measuring and managing the performance of a project requires comprehensive project planning and effective project control. Without this, no project can be accurately measured in terms of how well it is performing, and, by virtue of this, the project’s performance cannot be managed.

This interactive course on Project Performance Management will highlight the added value that can be achieved when effective control mechanisms and performance measurement tools are applied using proven Project Management Techniques.
