This training program will provide you with all the skill, knowledge and tools to enable you to complete any size project on time, in budget and to the delight of your customer without the noise and complexity of modern project management
In this lecture we discuss the three layers of our project management methodology, Governance, Project and Production.
We then determine the points in the project life cycle when mandatory milestone reviews and decision gate meetings are held
In this section we discuss a little contract administration before we dive in to closing contracts with our suppliers as well as our customer.
We then discus the administrative closure of the project including documenting the lessons we learned and passing through the final decision gate with an approved final report
In this lecture we discuss the processes involved in administering contracts and agreements during project execution so that the contract closing activities progress smoothly without confusion or conflict
In this lecture we discuss the processes around closing contracts at the end of the project
In this lecture we discuss the activities need to be completed to close our project in an orderly and controlled way
In this lecture we discuss the very important activity of identifying, analysing and communicating the lessons we learn as we work our way through our project
In this lecture we discuss the project Final Report. The discussion document the Project Manager takes to the final decision gate meeting where the decision is made by the Steering Team to formally close the books on the project
We summarise what we've learned in this three part training program, based on the premise that every project has a beginning, a middle and an end; my Practical Project Management Methodology and striving to simplify the complexity of modern project management
In this lecture we discuss the characteristics of projects in the closing phase
My name is Jeb Riordan and I've been a project manager for, well, too long.
Primarily in the telecommunications sector I have managed multi-million dollar projects in more than ten different countries, including, the UK, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan, Cambodia and the Caribbean.
I am a past member of the UK based Association for Project Management (APM) and the USA based Project Management Institute (PMI).
Although no longer a member of any professional institution I have maintained my PMI Project Management Professional Certification (PMP) status because it includes an element of continuing professional development (and it looks good on my resume!)
Oh, I also gained the Advanced Project Management Certificate from the International Institute for Learning. That was a long haul; simulating the NASA moon landing project.
Over the years, I have observed many projects failing because the project manager is overwhelmed with the need to adopt the latest fad in managing projects and managing people; losing sight of the real project objectives - On time, below budget and delighted stakeholders.
My mission is to simplify the complexity of modern project management by encouraging project managers, team members and stakeholders to focus on well proven, repeatable, solid practical project management processes making even the most complex of projects easy to monitor, control and complete successfully.
