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, Florida State government has mandated that all projects over $10 million be managed by certified project managers. To help in this challenge The Performance Institute offers a week long boot camp that will meet all your project management needs.

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 the Project Management for Florida Government 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, which can serve as a strong foundation for new knowledge, as well as build additional project management skills and experience.

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.
