Setting Your Project Up for Success
Program and Project Managers (PMs) have the primary responsibility for developing and managing projects according to government requirements and measurable performance standards.
They ensure that all activities in the project life-cycle achieve their intended outcomes.
This session will address the government PM’s role and a number of tools that can be used during performance of the project to ensure a successful post-award phase of the acquisition process.
Proper planning dramatically increases your odds of meeting project objectives and coming in on time and under budget.
In this webcast, you’ll discover the tools to initiate a government project successfully.
Denise Brown, will show you how to set realistic objectives and accurate baselines for scope, timeline, costs and quality.
The five key tools for project success are:
- Stakeholder Analysis
- Importance of Project Charter
- Developing Explicit Requirements
- Communications Requirements/Guidelines
- Dedicated Risk Management
While the use of these tools will vary based on the type and complexity of the project, effective project management depends on how the PM performs his/her role and how effectively the PM uses the tools available to monitor project performance
