Define and Sequence Activities (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Properly defining and sequencing project activities allows a project manager to answer two basic scheduling questions: what activities are required to develop the end product, and how should the activities be sequenced for optimal results? The first step in developing a reliable project schedule is identifying project activities and their interrelationships. This course covers defining and sequencing project activities in the project management discipline, and introduces best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will be provided with an overview of the Project Time Management Knowledge Area and the interrelation with the Process Groups. The course also explores project activities and activity attributes, and the method of developing network diagrams, including dependency determination and identifying leads and lags. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work in their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.

Estimate Resources and Durations (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

Resources, such as people, materials, equipment, facilities, and money, are required throughout the entire project life cycle. Determining resource requirements is critical to successful project time and cost management. The ability to estimate the duration of each project activity is equally essential. It is not enough to know what needs to be done and what resources are required. A project manager must know how much time it will take to complete each activity. This course covers estimating activity resources and durations in the project management discipline and introduces best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will be provided with an overview of establishing resource requirements, sources of activity duration information, and methods of estimating activity durations. Some of the duration estimating techniques taught in this course include analogous estimating, parametric estimating, and using three-point estimates. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work in their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide - Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.

  • identify tools and techniques that provide high-level duration estimates
  • recognize the parametric estimating formula
  • recognize the three-point estimating formula
  • recognize examples of the outputs of the Estimate Activity Durations process
  • demonstrate your understanding of the Estimate Activity Resources and Estimate Activity Durations processes

Develop and Control the Schedule (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

The project schedule is critical to project management. It contains the planned start and finish dates for project activities and milestones. It also confirms which activities are dependent on others, therefore enabling the project manager to prioritize the order in which activities are to be completed. Developing the project schedule is an ongoing process throughout the project lifecycle, as there are many factors that can either accelerate or delay deliverables in a project. It is essential in successful project management to be able to quickly identify possible impacts, evaluate the effect on all project activities, and adjust the project activities as required to minimize risk. This course covers developing and controlling the project schedule in the project management discipline, and introduces best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will learn how to analyze activity sequences, durations, and resource and schedule constraints to create the project schedule. Learners will also calculate the critical path using a forward and backward pass, calculate the float, and calculate the critical chain in order to monitor progress and make changes to the project schedule as required. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information. It will enable learners to effectively put principles to work in their own organizations, and assist in preparing them for the PMI® certification exam.
