Course description

Understanding a project’s schedule requirements and the time-phasing of project tasks is the backbone of effective project management. This course, compliant with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s®) current Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide, Fourth Edition), focuses on the
importance of developing an accurate, enforceable project schedule. Participants will be guided through project-schedule development theory and implementation by means of lectures, discussions, and a case study.
