[

TRAINING

OBJECTIVE To qualify students in project time management, administering and interpreting the schedules. The course will also introduce the tools to be daily used in the time management.

TRAINING CONTENT At the end of the course the student will be able to:

✓✓Decompose the project scope through the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) to the activities’ level

✓✓Develop a realistic project schedule ✓✓Establish connection between the tasks that reflect the real work

✓✓Determine the schedule’s gaps and delays ✓✓Determine the work duration through the PERT Analysis ✓✓Understand the fundaments of the critical chain ✓✓Identify and determine the project’s critical path ✓✓Reduce the time through the Compression and Fast Tracking methods

✓✓Execute the project control considering the main change sources

MY COOKING PROJECT EXERCISE ÂŽ

Ricardo Vargas had the opportunity to learn very interesting dynamics that show the project management importance while studying in the Strategy and Innovation program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). During the classes, he developed a simple dynamic based on the elaboration of a quick dinner for guests to demonstrate the importance of establishing the appropriate strategies for managing the project and the inherent risks to every decision making and also to the manager risk profile.

TRAINING MY COOKING PROJECT EXERCISE

The dynamics is are performed in two hours with all participants. They were divided into groups, competing for the best performance seeking to understand the risks associated with each decision.

Features

1- Shows the influence of the RISK PROFILE of the project decision maker. 2- Promotes TEAMWORK in the decisionmaking 3- Evaluate the effectiveness of the duration COMPRESSION mechanisms.

PMCOASTER DYNAMIC ÂŽ

It is a dynamics developed to simulate the real projects environment. Divided into teams, the participants will plan and execute the construction of a functional high speed roller coaster prototype for a theme park. Students will define the work, evaluate the project feasible budget and time in order to execute it. They will do so concerning the time and costs constraints. Then, students will execute and monitor the project to demonstrate the effectiveness of the plan in adverse conditions. The approximate duration of the dynamics is 2 hours and its main objective is to show the interrelationship between the scope required, deadlines and available budget. In addition, the aspects related to the teamwork quality are directly addressed. Š Macrosolutions SA. All rights reserved.

ADDITIONAL DYNAMICS As part of our methodology, in this course the following dynamics will be used:

[

CASE STUDIES › Ricardo Vargas and the Macrosolutions’ team have selected a relevant set of case studies and exercises that allow the participants to associate real and fictional cases the to daily work. › All case studies are appropriate to the nature of the client and the training audience.

[

VIDEOS SELECTION › In order to facilitate the student learning, videos that cover various parts of movies, commercials, home videos, etc. are used in the classroom environment to fix concepts and associate technical issues with the reality of work and also to introduce new concepts. › They are short videos with direct focus on specific topics, tools and cases.

[

SIMULATORS › To discuss some mathematical and statistical approaches, the instructor will perform specific mathematical simulations to estimate the expected results for the risks, schedules, costs, among others. They are computational methods that use mathematical concepts, operational research and statistics as a conceptual basis.

[

COMPUTER BASED EXERCISES › To facilitate the learning on the digital tools, students practice exercises in a computer using softwares such as Microsoft Project, MindManager Professional and others. © Macrosolutions SA. All rights reserved.
