Master all the modern project scheduling and cost control techniques you need, in one focused tutorial! Randal Wilson's Project Schedule & Cost Control  isn't your typical project management guide: it's 100% focused on the specific principles, techniques, and best-practice methodologies of scheduling and cost control.

 

Wilson illuminates key issues through the extensive use of graphs, charts, case studies, and worked examples; and calls your attention to crucial issues that "generic" PM books ignore. Coverage includes: 

  • Project structures, including differences between projects and programs, and how those differences affect costing and scheduling
  • Initiation: how projects start, how to develop project charters and stakeholder registers, and how to manage stakeholders
  • Planning, in depth: what costs must be addressed, and what schedule constraints must be considered
  • Project schedule analysis: activity definition, WBS, and work packages;  activity sequencing and diagramming; proven methodologies for estimating resources and activity durations; and schedule development
  • Project cost analysis: gathering and estimating all project costs, including labor, materials, vendor bids, subcontractors, contracts, equipment, facilities, and direct/indirect costs.
  • Budgeting via top-down, bottom-up, and activity-based methods
  • Project monitoring and control: earned value, tracking Gantt, S-Curves, performance reviews, milestone analysis, change control systems, estimate at completion, forecasting, and much more

For both project management newcomers and working project managers who need to sharpen their skills
