  • Lectures and examples
  • Individual exercises and case studies.

GENERAL APPROACH :

The key steps of planning a project. The techniques implemented in project management software and a demonstration through the use of the software itself.

Construction of the course of the project and the analysis of the planning through two approaches: by duration (or the work) or by the loads (or resources).

Critical path, negative margins, S-curve, smoothing, leveling, load scheduling, margin ordering.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Advanced

The course is for management professionals (managers or leaders) of important small or sub-projects and who are required to participate in medium to large-scale projects.

EVALUATION OF THE COURSE AT DIFFERENT LEVELS

The course is subject to an evaluation process

(from the Kirkpatrick model) at four levels:

The so-called level I evaluation that allows trainees to express their feelings at the time.

As part of the Postgraduate Highware Program in Project Engineering (IPMA - International Project Management Association), this course is subject to a knowledge evaluation (known as level II), a standardized evaluation of group work (level III), and an evaluation of acquired skills (level IV).

For intra-company tools, this evaluation can be supplemented by a Level III evaluation, where specific implementation by learners is the subject of a review conducted with the same group.
