Description

Dear Government Project Managers:

Cost and schedule overruns plague government projects! Poor project management continues to be one of the biggest headaches facing government managers. Poor project planning, faulty definition of project scope and lack of transparency on project performance opens agencies to significant project risks. To address these challenges, skilled project managers are needed to help bring project costs and timing within an acceptable level.

Management Initiatives Emphasize Project Management
Many complex government management improvement initiatives have been launched over the last few years that rely heavily on project management skills and compliance with state-of-practice project management standards. The skills learned at Project Management for Government Week will help you better understand how to implement change and accelerate your own career.

Project Management for Results
Within the process of business-as-usual, in which agencies go forward with their established routines to produce their standard quality products and/or services, there often arises a unique, stand-alone effort to recover a failing project or solve a major problem along the project time-line. Both new and experienced project managers will benefit from these time-tested and proven best practices and serves as a strong foundation on which to learn new as well as build additional project management skills and knowledge.

New Project Management Measurement using EVM
Don't let your project control you; be proactive in its monitoring and control. Use Earned Value to promote effective project planning, monitoring, and control. Discover keys to identify potential cost and schedule overruns. Grasp the tools and techniques required to compare actual work accomplished against baseline schedules and cost. Recognize what must be done to successfully implement and use Earned Value in your organization.
