  • Project Controls – A Definition

    The era of the big shot project manager might be over. Project management has evolved into such a multidimensional profession, that it is no longer realistic to expect a single person to show excellence in all facets of project management. Different aspects of project management require a different skill set.

The following topics are covered in this training:

  • What types of activities are known;
  • What type of relationships can be used;
  • How does the calculation of a network take place;
  • What is slack and what slack do we know;
  • What is the critical path and what are critical activities;
  • Resource load and load leveling;
  • Practical examples and tips of good network planning and the progress cycle.
