Course description

Not only is effective project and program management the result of best-practice project management techniques, but it is also the result of attention to the associated project financials. This course for PMO project managers is designed to increase the project manager’s level of understanding of project costs and the need for detailed cost management. This course will cover basic project value, financing, and cost management throughout the project life cycle.

Simulating a background for a project based on product release, the content will cover the financial life cycle of proposal (business case and value statement), budget, funds allocation and commitments, cost tracking, change impact analysis, and governance reporting forecasting stages. This course will show you how cost ties in to better go-to-market readiness, resource planning, and control.
