THE PENINSULA MANILA, MAKATI CITY, PHILIPPINES
You can’t manage what you can’t plan, schedule and monitor effectively. With so many projects and programs we all have to juggle every day, we all need the right system, techniques, and tools to be more effective and efficient in work and in life. We’re flying in the expert to teach you all these.

On day 1, we will teach you the internationally-recognized “Best Practice” technique for project planning and scheduling known as the Critical Path Method (CPM). In applying this technique, you will have a competitive advantage over your peers who adhere to traditional Gantt project management methods.

On day 2, you will learn the Earned Value Method (EVM) -- a “Best Practice” system for monitoring and managing project implementation. This will be very helpful for timely management decision-making and corrective actions. The “Better Practice” EVM innovations introduced in this seminar also facilitates effective Portfolio Management.

Attendees will receive a free software with 83 project management templates that can help you simplify your work including A “Better Practice” Project Performance Index (PPI) & Traffic Light System- developed by the best-in-class instructor- for integrated status and progress reporting.

Program & Course Outline

Day 1 - Thursday, 11 April 2013

THE CRITICAL PATH METHOD (CPM) FOR PLANNING, SCHEDULING AND IMPLEMENTING PROJECTS

This one day seminar-workshop will provide participants with knowledge and “hand on” experience to acquire sufficient skill to apply the Critical Path Method “on-the-job” immediately afterwards. [Comes with a complimentary set of simulation Board Game].

0800-0900 – Registration and Morning Coffee
0900-1030 – Overview presentation of project monitoring with Gantt/Milestone technique (lecture & class exercise)
                     – Introduction to Critical Path Method Concepts (lecture and small group exercise)
1030-1045 – Networking Break
1045-1300 – Step-by-step application of Critical Path Method concepts and computations in small groups with instructor facilitation
1300-1400 – Networking Lunch
1400-1515 – Demonstration by instructor of Critical Path “Microsoft Project” software
                     – Lecture on instructor-designed innovations for improving activity time estimates in order to reduce risk
                     – Introduction to instructor-designed project implementation simulation game
1515-1530 – Networking Break
1530-1650 – In small groups, the participants play the project implementation simulation game to reinforce CPM concepts and their decision-making skills
1650-1700 – Open Forum & assessment of the Lessons Learned

DESCRIPTION
The Critical Path Method (CPM) is an internationally-recognized “Best Practice” technique for project planning and scheduling

UNIQUENESS
• A “Better Practice” statistical approach to reduce risk in developing time estimates – developed by the instructor—is presented
• An executive implementation simulation game—developed by the instructor-is used to reinforce participants’ decision-making understanding and practices utilizing CPM

OBJECTIVES
• Participants will be able to apply CPM, improved risk analysis techniques and milestone management to their projects
• Managers applying CPM will have a competitive advantage over their peers who adhere to traditional Gantt project management methods

Day 2 - Friday, 12 April 2013

EARNED VALUE METHOD (EVM) FOR MONITORING PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION

This one day seminar-workshop will provide participants with knowledge and “hands on” experience to acquire sufficient skill to apply the Earned Value Method “on-the-job” immediately afterwards. [Comes with a complimentary set of Performace Evaluator Toolkit].

0800-0900 – Registration and Morning Coffee
0900-1030 – Presentation of key indicators and traditional approaches for budgeting and monitoring project implementation (lecture & class exercise)
                     – “Four Day Rome” Project Status Analysis (lecture and small group exercise)

1650-1700 – Open Forum & assessment of Lessons Learned

DESCRIPTION
Earned Value Method (EVM) is a “Best Practice” system for monitoring and managing project implementation and managing the “Triple Threat” (TT) during project implementation – i.e. actual elapsed time, incurred expenditure & cost obligations and technical performance vs. the planned schedule, budget-to-date, as well as life-of-project budget. Without EVM, most project managers and management systems monitor each TT aspect separately; but with EVM the dynamic interaction of these elements is measured, providing a more complete perspective, for timely management decision-making and corrective action. The “Better Practice” EVM innovations introduced in this seminar also facilitates effective Portfolio Management.

UNIQUENESS
• A “Better Practice” graphic technique – developed by the instructor – for the integrated monitoring of cost vs. work
• A “Better Practice” Project Performance Index (PPI) & Traffic Light System- developed by the instructor- for integrated status and progress reporting
• Participants will receive a copy of the Traffic Light System software for immediate application “on-the-job” in monitoring, analysis and reporting of their on-going projects

OBJECTIVES
• Participants will be able to apply the Earned Value Method for monitoring their projects
• Managers applying EVM will have a competitive advantage over their peers who adhere to traditional project management methods
