Project Execution Monitoring Control and Closing
This course provides students with the practices and processes for launching, monitoring, controlling, and closing projects. Special emphasis is given to the eleven processes included in the monitoring and controlling process groups. The course provides students with the processes and techniques used to harness change, and control “scope creep,” time delays, and cost overruns. The course builds students’ understanding of, and appreciation for, the Earned Value Management System (EVMS) as a better alternative to the inadequate measures of “on time” or “on budget.” The course concludes with an automated simulation that tests students’ ability to make decisions which improve the probability of project success.
