This AMS course provides a deep insight to the skills, tools, and techniques associated with Managing Project Controls, and can be used as part of a progressive curricular, standalone learning experience, or team up-skilling initiative. Managing Project Controls is a key skill in today’s progressive organizations. As a correlation to project quality, it does no good to have a stringent monitoring and control plan-approach that one cannot actually execute. The lack of control “execute-ability” lies in a lack of understanding regarding the development (“set-up”) of the project’s Scope, WBS, Work Packages, Cost Accounts and Associated Baselines. This course explores the underlying planning-based elements that ensure project control as well as the systematic, process, and cultural considerations involved with developing and implementing a “practical” project control system and implementation culture. Participants will enhance their experience by interacting with imbedded scenarios, participating in table exercises, building a personal action plan, and sharing with their peers.
