Week of March 7
We will do a quick quiz on Project Time Mgt (and since the class achieved 90% on the CAPM simulation, I know you will do well).
We are going to take a quick look at Stakeholders, just to show how PMs work with them. There is a whole section in PMBOK you will need to review on your own if you are planning to earn a PMI credential.
The primary focus this week will be on managing costs. Recall the scope-time-cost triad and its significance in project management (surrounding, of course, "quality"). A fair amount of your professional discussions in the future will relate to the financials, and this segment will prepare you to become an excellent project cost analyst and manager.
