Bringing "Visibility" & "Predictability" in Projects!

Course Code : 05BVPIP02DCL

Introduction :

A situation: …
"So…what's your project all about? How's it doing? How would it go?" … A sudden, 'seemingly easy' question! Each of us must have faced this question at some or the other situations. And the time to answer… varies from 10 minutes to 2 hrs! We do feel an internal expression of confusion and tension!

A simple hypothesis works like this …
"Unless a PM knows 'what is happening' - visibility; it would not be possible to answer 'what would happen' – predictability".

  • Predictability = fn (Visibility) [fn means 'function of']
  • Visibility = fn (Measurability)
  • Measurability = fn (Visualization competency)

The design of training program also focuses on the following learning objectives.

Learning Objectives : Having gone through the program, the participants will be able to…

  • Visualize the project work right since PO / contract
  • Develop Functional, Deliverable, and Work – breakdown structure
  • Develop scenario planning (what if analysis)
  • List parameters of measurability in the project
  • Use measurable parameters in communication
  • Define the completeness of the project
  • Practice predicting the project movement accurately
  • Guide learning partners on project management
  • Document and share the project experiences in a very interesting manner
  • Use the project uniqueness
  • Achieve 14 contact hours of Project Management Education

Prerequisite :

Participants should have project management background or at least have worked in project environment. The course is equally useful for those who are about to begin their role as project managers. It would be advantageous to include the participants of similar profiles in terms of their seniority/ experience attending the batch.
