Presentation Description

Description of Topic/Presentation:

In this course, you will learn about the various facets of Project SRA (Schedule Risk Analysis) through hands-on usage of the most advanced Project Management Tools and Techniques – the IMS (Integrated Master Schedule), and SRA.  You will learn concepts and theories that facilitate the further development of good project plans which consider a proactive risk management process referred to as SRA another “Best Practice” tool and technique.  By mastering these IMS and SRA tools and techniques, you will enhance your team’s project performance and increase your credibility as a high caliber project manager and/or functional lead.

  2. Learning the Practical Application of analyzing and adjusting a project Plan/IMS through actual hands-on experience

  4. The concept of developing an achievable project plan (i.e., one with a reasonable % confidence in meeting project deliverables), and establishing a bought-into more aggressive “Target” plan for the team to work to – which typically improves your likelihood of achieving project commitments, due to the proactive risk management approach taken.
