Course description

Managing Project Resources, Cost, and Quality

This is one of four courses in the CEG Project Management Certificate Program. It is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition, Project Management Institute (PMI®), 2017. The course includes project planning and management techniques from four Project Management Knowledge Areas: Resources, Cost, Procurement, and Quality.

As part of a case study, participants develop a resource management plan that later becomes an input in the development of a time-phased budget. As they develop the budget, participants practice the use of various cost estimating techniques while working within schedule, scope, and other constraints. As part of procurement management, participants develop criteria for evaluating seller proposals. Finally, participants practice quality management techniques by developing quality metrics.
