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.
