Discuss project scope and its relationship to costs, as well as the cost estimating process. Learn how simple but effective tools like MS Excel and MS Project can help control project costs. You will also study risk management – including the nature of risk factors; methods of assessing and estimating impact of risk; and ways of avoiding or mitigating risks. Other topics include monitoring and reporting, sustaining commitment, resource reallocation, balancing time versus quality, performance measurement, and change management.
