This seminar focuses on the identification, elaboration, planning and management of project scope, including selected processes from the Project Integration Management and Project Scope Management PMBOK Guide Knowledge Areas. The class addresses requirements identification and analysis, scope identification and planning, the scope baseline, scope management and change control, integration of scope, schedule and cost, scope verification and sign-off by the customer. During the course, “best practices” will be introduced, and put into context through various exercises and scenarios and case studies.
Students enrolling in this course should be planning to lead a project (primary audience) or serve on a project team (secondary audience).
To ensure your success, we recommend you have some working knowledge or experience in working in a project environment, or have completed a foundations course in project management.

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
