Controlling Project Change and Risk (Virtual)

  •  day(s)Duration
  • 4 3-hr sessions (12 hrs.)Duration
  • MDV978aCourse Code

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). The course begins by covering risk planning, then focuses on monitoring and control from a variety of perspectives, including scope, time, cost, communications, and risk.

As part of a case study, participants develop a risk register and risk response plans. Then, participants respond to scenarios in which status reports indicate variances from the project plan. Participants must analyze variances in scope, cost, and schedule and then prepare change requests to bring the project back under control. In a simulated change control process, change requests are evaluated for approval or rejection based on an impact assessment. Participants then learn how to update project baselines to reflect change control decisions.
