Consulting Project Management Tools Course Modules: What you will learn and how you will practice these skills

Learn Skills & Techniques in Reading and Lectures

1. Strategic Planning – Learn techniques for analyzing complex business situations and discovering conflicting goals from the client’s executive team. Master several project design methodologies including: agile, waterfall, design-build and iterative. Learn the pros and cons of each for the client’s situation.

2. Stakeholder Management – Learn techniques to assess the personality and communication preferences of the client’s stakeholders and executives. Then learn how to tailor your communications delivery to their preferences.

3. Estimating – Learn how to estimate cost and duration with order of magnitude, parametric, 3-point, analogous and rolling estimating techniques. Understand the pros and cons of each technique and when to use each one.

4. Risk Management – Learn how to identify the risks the consulting project faces. Then master qualitative and quantitative risk analysis. Next, learn to develop risk responses for both negative and positive risks. Also learn how to identify the risk(s) you can avoid. Then develop contingency plans for the risks you can’t avoid.

5. Tracking, Earned Value, Tradeoffs & Critical Path – Learn to analyze the project’s actual performance versus the plan. Use both classic variance analysis and earned value techniques. Next, learn how to forecast the final cost and the completion date from earned value data.

Practice in Live Online Meetings & Presentations

1. Run a project planning meeting with the client executives (role-played by your instructor) and guide them to agreement on the strategic steps to reach their project goal. Use design methodologies to break down high-level deliverables into their components and supporting deliverables.

2. Then have a live online meeting with each client department head (role-played by your instructor). Use the communication approach that is correct for each personality type. Gather their requirements, define the achievements and build consensus.

3. Develop estimates for the project’s cost and duration using data provided by your instructor. Then present your estimates to the client executives (role-played by your instructor). Answer their questions and defend your estimates when they want to slash the budget and cut the duration.

4. Assess the project’s risks using risk data provided by your instructor. Then develop a risk management plan. Your instructor will review your plan for technical correctness. Next, present your plan to the client executives (role-played by your instructor). Gain their approval and support for your risk management plan.

5. Present the project’s overall status to the client executives (role-played by your instructor). Include your action plan for fixing the problems and your forecast of the final cost and duration. Defend your plan and answer the executives’ questions.
