A Practical Guide to Project and Contract Surveillance

Ms Lisa Wolf, MBA, EVP, PMP

Thursday 4th May 2017, 9:00am – 4:30pm

UNSW Canberra at ADFA

 

Registration is $990.00 inc GST and includes:Lisa Wolf

- attendance at masterclass session

- morning/afternoon teas and lunch
- name badge.

 

 

Context for Masterclass

There are over half a million certified Project Management Professionals (PMP®) Worldwide.  With this wealth of demonstrated knowledge all over the world, why are so many projects still coming in late, over budget, and short of key scope requirements?  Perhaps surveillance of project managers’ performance is the key to uncovering blind spots and unrealized areas of weakness.

 

Solid surveillance processes and functions significantly improve these key project performance factors.

 

Masterclass Objectives:

This masterclass will focus on the approaches which can be adopted and lessons learned in setting up a project and contract management surveillance function which comes from Booz Allen Hamilton’s experience as well as extensive experience assisting US Government agencies and other clients.

 

Best practices which are essential for successfully establishing this function including processes, procedures, and vital internal relationship-building will be explored.

Earned Schedule Analysis

Mr Walt Lipke

Thursday 4th May 2017, 9:00am – 4:30pm

UNSW Canberra at ADFA

 

Registration is $990.00 inc GST and includes:  Walt Lipke

- morning/afternoon teas and lunch
- name badge.

 

Earned schedule analysis is a breakthrough analytical technique that derives schedule performance measures in units of time, rather than cost. The same basic Earned Value Management (EVM) data points are used. Indicators, similar  
to those for cost, are derivable from the earned schedule measure. These indicators provide a status and predictive ability for schedule, analogous to cost.

 

Because these metrics use time based measures, they augment traditional EVM and integrated schedule analysis. Work has also been undertaken which provides "bridging" analytical techniques between Earned Schedule and traditional integrated schedule analysis. 

 

Part 1 of the “emerging practice” trainingsession will cover:

  • The Earned Schedule concept, metrics, indicators, predictors and terminology
  • Concept verification
  • Prediction comparisons
  • Demonstrate an Earned Schedule Calculator and Analysis tool
  • Describe the Earned Schedule “Interpolation error”

Part 2 will cover the Earned Schedule re-baseline effects before moving on to cover the "bridging" analytical techniques between Earned Schedule and traditional integrated schedule analysis which have been developed to date including:

  • Critical path study where the critical path calculated completed date was compared to the Earned Schedule predicted completion date on a small but time critical software development project
  • Network schedule analysis using Earned Schedule
  • The very advanced concepts of “schedule adherence” and “effective Earned Value”.

The Workshop presenters will facilitate discussion with participants to obtain feedback, explore possible additional analytical techniques and canvass views on further ways forward.

 

An electronic distribution of the currently available Earned Schedule papers, presentations, calculator and analysis tool will be arranged for participants.

 

This is a rare Australian opportunity with the inventor of the Earned Schedule, Mr Walt Lipke’s participation in the PGCS 2017.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity!
