Workshop Agenda:

Ever wonder if you’re doing “it” right? One of the common challenges in building project plans and working within an organization context is coping with the uncertainty as to whether or not you’re doing project management right. With thousands of consulting practices and textbooks offering the latest flavor of project management, it’s hard to sort through the chaff to find the wheat. In this exciting, activity-filled day, Carl Pritchard returns to Upstate New York to bring his humorous, engaging style to bear on the fundamental tools of classic project management. From the Work Breakdown Structure to Networks to Estimating and Risk, Carl hits the hot buttons of classic project management and works to ensure that the most common mistakes are overcome.

The Work Breakdown Structure

  • Tasks versus Deliverables
  • Activities versus Work Packages
  • Right-sizing and Enabling Earned Value
  • The Higher Levels

Cost Estimating and Earned Value

  • Counting People (FTEs versus $$)
  • Counting Post-Its® (and why not to)
  • Full-time versus Sort-of-Half-time

Time, Scheduling and Networks

  • The Nature of Time
  • Building Activity Driven Networks
  • Team-building with the Schedule

Risk Management, not Response
