Project Planning

Topic: Project Management

“Why waste time creating a project schedule that is likely to change regularly throughout the project?” This is a question most if not all project managers are asking themselves.

In this 2-part module, you will take a look at the type of challenges issues involved in project planning (some go far beyond the creation of a simple color diagram).

Part A Learning objectives:

Understand the key phases of a planning process step-by-step via an interactive case study. Key notions will be explained in context through videos and activities:

  • What is an appropriate project presentation method (the milestone diagram or Gantt chart)
  • To list activities, identify the continuity constraints, draw up a logical succession of tasks, and determine the duration of activities.

Part B Learning objectives:

Utilise explanatory videos and interactive videos to formalize and communicate about a project:

  • To calculate dates and identify the critical path.
  • What are ‘free’ and ‘total’ floats.
  • Create a Gantt chart and choose your tracking tool.

Learning outcomes:

  • Ability to define the most appropriate schedule presentation method for your project at the end of Part A. You can also share a project planning process with your team.
  • Knowing a project’s critical path so as to adopt the right attitude to floats in your schedule, you are able to formalize, communicate and share the team’s activity.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
