This webinar is the fourth of a 4 part series series on Project Scheduling by Solutions Cube.  Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

The project schedule developed at the beginning of a project is not a guarantee of what will occur. Project schedules are in fact, only a point-in-time guess. Many things will conspire to invalidate the plan – project team members may not be available or may leave the project, technologies may work better or worse than expected, changes may be approved, and so on.

Attend this 1 hour presentation to learn why it is important to monitor progress against the schedule, communicate the progress, and refine the schedule based on facts and our observations.

In this 1 hour in-depth webinar participants learn:

  • Understand effects of path convergence and joint probabilities
  • Discover recommended best practices for effectively controlling project schedules
  • Understand how to use earned value to monitor project schedules
  • Learn about considerations for preventive and corrective actions when controlling project schedules.
  • Gather practical implementation tips for effectively monitoring and controlling projects

This webinar is the first in a two part series series on “Stakeholder Analysis” by Solutions Cube. Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

Whether your project is large or small, it’s important to know who your stakeholders are and what they expect from the project. How are they going to be involved in the project and what kind of communication do they need? How do you figure out who the people and organizations are that need to be engaged in your project and what their perceived impact of the project is on the area they’re representing?

This is the first webinar in a 2 part series on Stakeholder Analysis. This webinar will discuss how to identify your stakeholders and obtain information about those stakeholders required to ensure that the project is a success.

Attend this 1 hour presentation to learn how to perform a stakeholder analysis, document the results of your analysis in the Stakeholder Register, and use the information to determine what key stakeholder expectations and communication needs are.

In this 1 hour in-depth webinar participants learn:

  • Identify all stakeholders impacted by the project and who have influence on the project
  • Gather critical information about each stakeholder
  • Develop the Stakeholder Register
