Best Practices for Estimating, Planning and Scheduling (Small & Mid-Sized Projects)

This seminar will examine proven concepts and tools that can be used for effective planning, scheduling, and estimating on small and mid-sized projects.

Key topics covered in this seminar include how to apply the project management best practices that are applicable for large projects to smaller projects. The presentation will also demonstrate how to develop systematic and logical tools including templates and checklists to assess any schedule, costs risks and uncertainties during the execution of the project.

Tying together the elements of procurement/cost control, project plan to the baseline schedule development both during pre-construction and updating stages of the project, will all be covered in this session.

This will be an opportunity for you to interact in group discussions, so please come prepared with questions, current problems as well as best practices.
