RedVector is happy to announce that the following 4 courses have been released for Advanced Project Management.
Confirming that sustainability concepts are designed into a project from the beginning ensures that project sponsors and owners receive the maximum value, either through reduced project costs or through reduced life cycle costs.
This interactive online course will teach you the principles of sustainability and how you can use this basic knowledge to increase the value in the projects you manage. You will also learn about the effects of climate change on projects and how to properly address the risks that arise from climate change. Additionally, you will learn how sustainability can be integrated into traditional project management by addressing each of PMI’s five project management process groups and eleven knowledge areas.
To control a project and keep it on budget and schedule, you need to have a quantified sense of where the project is. How is it doing? Is it on time? Is it on budget? Are the deliverable’s being delivered? Are the end users satisfied? To achieve this level of project performance assessment requires a deeper understanding of metrics and measures. During this interactive online course, you will go deeper than the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Book of Knowledge® takes individuals in Earned Value Management. This course will also expand your understanding of metrics and Key Performance Indicators, which are essential tools and techniques project managers must develop to effectively conduct project performance measurement on today’s complex projects.

Knowing scheduling techniques will better prepare you to make decisions about schedule development and give better direction to your project team about schedule performance.
