This workshop helps participants understand and apply project breakdown best practices. Project breakdown is an essential technique that provides a better overall view of the project and helps integrate stakeholders.
- The rules for establishing a work breakdown structure (WBS) for a project
- How to validate the quality of a WBS
- The links between the WBS and the project’s other knowledge areas and its environment
- The role of the project leader in the establishment of estimates
- Preparing estimation activities
- The various estimation approaches
- Evaluating the level of confidence in estimates and hypotheses
- The importance of the deliverables/roles/responsibilities matrix and how to use it
- Project staffing issues associated with estimates, assignments and capacity
This workshop is designed for those looking to implement the principles surrounding proactive and effective project management by taking part in a workshop that will allow them to try out the concepts taught.
- Understand and develop good project breakdown techniques as part of an “integrated and cross-cutting” vision
- Develop effort and cost estimates for the duration of the project, based on the breakdown established
- Understand how to communicate resource requirements and assess staffing in relation to the estimates produced and establish sufficient links between durations and capacity based on a comprehensive vision of the project.
Structured workshop where concepts are demonstrated and applied to two case studies (business and IT).
