About the Course

There are countless numbers of projects undertaken by companies in the public and private sectors that greatly exceed the project schedule and budget; as a result, these projects fail to achieve the company's financial and strategic goals. This is often accompanied by significant increases in costs and substantial financial losses for the company because many project managers need help to successfully apply modern project planning tools and techniques and monitor, manage, and report the progression of their projects. The project budget is the engine that drives your project's funding. It communicates to stakeholders how much money is needed and when it is required. Project budgets are important for any industry, such as construction, marketing or manufacturing, but a project budget is not only a means to get things that your project requires. Yes, you must pay teams to buy or rent equipment and materials, but that is only half the story.

This 5-day interactive Budgeting and Scheduling Projects training course will teach the delegates the importance of a project budget that has been an instrument to control project costs. The budget, part of the project plan, acts as a baseline to measure the performance and collect the actual costs once the project has been started.

Core Objectives

The delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Define milestones and create a milestone schedule
  • Identify the resource needs of the project
  • Estimate the quantities and costs of resources needed for project activities
  • Define what is required to estimate activity durations
  • Determine the critical path and calculate the float
  • Undertstand the standard cost-estimating techniques to determine a project budget

The delegates of this training course will receive thorough training on the subjects utilising various proven adult learning, teaching, and facilitation techniques. It includes interactive techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented.
