Feb 20, 2020 | Feb 27, 2020 | Mar 5, 2020 at 9 AM to 11 AM Eastern
Have you ever wondered how you can tie project estimation to project control? If so, this three-part virtual instructor-led training workshop will help you make the connection. The workshop uses a real-world scenario to demonstrate how you can use project estimation, a work breakdown structure (WBS), and earned value management (EVM) metrics to control and manage ICT projects. During these sessions, you will have an opportunity to create customized documents and templates to use for your ICT projects once the workshop is over.
