Best Practices for Project Management — Project Planning

May 12 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Projects are defined as discrete work packages characterized as having set goals, specific periods of performance and limited budgets. Often these occur as a result of a special need that does not fit neatly into an organization’s mainline operations or as the result of receiving a contract from an outside source (like an SBIR or STTR). Whatever the genesis of the project, the need for proper planning, cost estimating and control are universal. In this three part webinar series, you will learn how to plan, set up and manage project cost, schedule and technical performance by establishing local, Project Manager-controllable tools to create a successful project culture.
Part 2 “Project Planning”, May 12, 10:30AM-Noon:  
This session will focus on the tools of Project Management with primary emphasis on the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and Task Authorization as the basic building blocks for project planning, cost estimating and management.  
What you will learn:
How to accomplish a proper, bottoms-up cost estimate with minimal errors; how to determine manpower, material, travel and other direct costs; how to identify and avoid insurmountable bottle necks by level-loading labor requirements; how to establish truly usable project monitoring systems.
