Controlling Project Costs and Risks – Spring 2011

My popular UCSD Extension course, Controlling Project Costs and Risks,  is going to be available online through the BlackBoard Academic Suite platform beginning Monday, April 4th. It’s a true anywhere, anytime learning course with a guided, asynchronous discussion.

Project management and control is simplified by good planning right from the start. The course is totally online and includes 27 hours of instruction.  The course is offered a limited number of times each year, and covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to the BlackBoard System and Course
  • Selecting and Planning Projects
  • Controlling Project Costs with Estimates and Contracts
  • Measuring Project Financial Progress
  • Controlling Project Scope and Changes
  • The Role of Communications in Controlling Costs and Risks
  • Controlling Project Risks
  • Risk Management Tools
  • Cost and Risk Case Studies
  • Miscellaneous Topics
    • Conducting Project Reviews
    • Relationship Between Schedules, Costs, and Risks
    • Managing Projects with Fixed Constraints
    • Why Do Managed Projects Fail?
    • The Relationship Between Projects and Products

More information and online enrollment is available from the course catalog at: Controlling Project Costs and Risks.

Here’s what learners are saying about the course:

“I was so impressed with how organized Ray is. I hope he teaches more classes soon!”

“Ray is one of the best instructors that I have come across via ‘online’ learning. He is very well organized, knows the material inside out, and encourages students to learn as much as we can by providing very valuable and informative information. I highly recommend Ray as an instructor.”

“Enthusiastic about the material. Brought quite a bit of supplemental material to the course. It was nice that you could read as much or as little of it to augment the learning that you were doing.”

“Thank you for creating a class that was stimulating to the point and enjoyable.”

“PLEASE ask the other instructors to follow his lead. His course materials are well written, organized and make sense from the start.”

Hope to see you online at UCSD Extension soon!
