Week 2

The project team members are the keys to your success. You’ll learn techniques to motivate and keep a team focused while working at high speed. Then, you’ll look at actual case studies to illustrate new ways of adjusting project speed and increasing overall productivity.

Week 3

Explore the risks that are most prevalent in high speed projects and learn how to plan for them when and if they occur. Then, learn the first five steps of fast-track planning because quickly creating a comprehensive project plan is crucial to staying on target. 

Week 4

Learn when and if you should use network diagrams and critical path analysis. You'll learn how to estimate time and costs that are in sync with an e-speed project. And we'll review the pros and cons of the critical chain management theory.

Week 5

Examine templates and real-life examples for rapid development of change control plans, communication and management plans, and the final project plan. You'll also learn the importance of obtaining plan approval sign-off and when and why to use a kickoff meeting. Then, learn how to allocate time and effort to achieve the greatest advantages for the project. 

Week 6

In this lesson, we’ll take a close look at the value of management toolkits that are simplified and easy to use. Finally, walk you through the final seven steps to end the project on a positive and professional note.
