An Overview of Project Management: 

An Overview of Project Management Why Project Management? Key concepts Time Control Cost Control Who Doesn’t Need Project Management? Work Smarter, Not Harder

An Overview of Project Management (cont.): 

An Overview of Project Management (cont.) Management: Project vs. General What is a problem? Key tasks and objectives

The Human Side of Project Management: 

The Human Side of Project Management Recruiting the right people The skill of managing

Steps in Project Management: 

Steps in Project Management Define the problem and visualize the end result Plan the project Identify resources, processes and options Execute the plan Monitor and control progress Close the project

The Project Management System: 

The Project Management System Structuring management Subsystems: Human Factors Methods Culture Organization Planning Information Control

A General Approach to Project Planning: 

A General Approach to Project Planning The Importance of Planning Planning and Control What Is Planning?

A General Approach to Project Planning (cont.): 

A General Approach to Project Planning (cont.) Components of a Project Plan Gaining Stakeholders’ acceptance of the project Can plans change and how should changes be handled?

A General Approach to Project Planning (cont.): 

A General Approach to Project Planning (cont.) Structured Planning Project Planning Steps Define the problem and develop the mission statement as well as major objectives. Develop a project strategy Write a scope statement to develop boundaries. Develop a work breakdown schedule in order to estimate activity durations, resource requirements and costs Prepare the project master schedule and budget Decide on the project organization structure. Set up the project notebook And obtain signoff by stakeholders.

Developing the project Mission, Goals and Objectives : 

Developing the project Mission, Goals and Objectives Statements: Problem and Mission Here is a problem and mission statement for the a project: Problem Mission Exercise: Write a problem and mission statement for the same project.

Using the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) in Project Planning: 

Using the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) in Project Planning What is a Work Breakdown Schedule? WBS vs. Schedules Guidelines for developing the WBS

Using the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) in Project Planning (cont.): 

Using the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) in Project Planning (cont.) Uses of the WBS Improving Estimating Ability Provide a percent tolerance Tell how the estimate was made Identify factors that might change the estimate

Scheduling Project Work: 

Scheduling Project Work Scheduling Project Work Scheduling Tools CPM PERT Network Diagrams Note: The critical path is the longest path through a project network and determines the earliest date on which work can be completed. All activities on the critical path must be completed as scheduled, or the end date will begin to slip one day for each day a critical activity is delayed.

Slide17: 

Guidelines for using CPM effectively. Stay on schedule. Don’t fall behind. If possible, use float only to deal with unexpected problems. Greater emphasis should be given to critical tasks Version your work; produce what is feasible. Accurate time estimates take into account the skill level of those working on the task. If a task spans more than six weeks, break it down into smaller subtasks. Don’t overload any one resource. Bar Charts Scheduling Computations (cont.)
