Building information modeling (BIM) has grown tremendously in just a few years. Meanwhile, factors are pushing the construction world to innovate opportunities for improving efficiency and productivity. In this scenario in any project, the project manager has the overall responsibility for project success.
The webinar is the first of two lessons and will provide an overview of an Earned Value Management System (EVMS).
The webinar is the second of two lessons and describes how to setup the WBS, schedule, budget, cost breakdown structure and organization breakdown structure to support the EVMS.
We have all been placed in the position of being a customer and having experienced varying degrees of satisfaction. We may have even envisioned what ideal service should resemble, yet grappled with how service experiences often fall short of our expectations. This presentation will explore customer satisfaction in the world of project management.
According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession, “When projects do not meet their original goals and project objectives, inaccurate business analysis/requirements management is cited as the primary cause 47% of the time.” And the increasing scale and complexity of projects is making it extremely difficult to assess and verify the project requirements. As a result - a huge amount of critical errors in project and systems development arise in the initial concept & design stages. In this presentation and workshop, we will focus on how harnessing automated computational tools utilizing Natural Language Processing can help project managers ensure their requirements are consistently clear & are a joy to work with. These project managers, business analysts, engineers and by extension their clients, will benefit in the earliest stages of a project to ensure poorly written requirements do not infiltrate later project stages leading to reduced stress, increased confidence and higher project success.
