The Project Notebook

It’s Official!!

I have two very important announcements from The Project Notebook:

1) I’ve been selected by the Project Management Institute to participate in a group of 25 volunteer leaders from around the globe in the 2010 PMI Leadership Institute Masters Class (LIMC). This is a year long program scheduled to begin October 5-7 2009 in Orlando Florida. The program consists of three physical meetings in addition to virtual participation.

The class experience includes:
· Participant Evaluations: LIMC participants will complete a 360-degree Assessment. Additional psychometric tools and assessments will also be incorporated into the program.
· Coaching: Individual coaching sessions will be provided to each participant.
· Virtual Leadership Forums: Participants are provided with an ongoing and open forum for continued learning and discussion between the face to face meetings.

2) My next offering of Controlling Project Costs and Risks Online through UCSD Extension begins the week of October 5 too! This online course is delivered by the UCSD BlackBoard Learning System.

Project control is simplified by good planning from the start. Explore project selection, evaluation, initiation, and the planning that follows. Discuss project scope and its relationship to costs, as well as the cost estimating process. Learn how simple but effective tools, like MS Excel and MS Project, can help control project costs. You will also study risk management – including the nature of risk factors; methods of assessing and estimating impact of risk; and ways of avoiding or mitigating risks. Other topics include monitoring and reporting, sustaining commitment, resource reallocation, balancing time versus quality, performance measurement and change management.

Controlling Project Costs and Risks is now in its 7th year and offered fully online. The next online class begins on Monday, October 5th for 10 weeks. Enhance your project management career or complete the PM Certificate requirements for UCSD Extension. For more information or to enroll in the class, please visit Controlling Project Costs and Risks at UCSD Extension.
