Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 1/25/2019)
183-Quality Project Management

This course is about improving the quality for managing project work in an organization whether you are an engineer, senior manager or professional project manager. In the ideal project world, project managers are well-trained professionals and assigned to a project at the beginning of the project. In the real project world, many projects are small and assigned to engineers and managers with less than professional project management training at any time in the life of the project.

For the engineer, senior manager or professional project manager the quality for managing project work should improve significantly by combining seven key tools with a basic feature from statistical process control, the control chart. The seven key tools, called The Seven Icons©, are presented in this course and will demonstrate how they can be used to improve planning and controlling project work.

The Seven Icons© are organized and connected in a structure that is easy to remember. The icon terms serve as a common language between managers, team members, and their bosses. This feature becomes most important when considering that practically everyone in an organization is involved in some kind of project work. Having an effective way of remembering and applying key tools to project work will improve communications throughout the organization and ultimately improve the quality for managing project work.

At the end of the course is a set of questions that highlights the take-aways for the reader to remember and use for improving the quality for managing projects in their organization.

Interesting nomenclature. Good relationship between course text and test questions. It is easy to be a critic and difficult to prepare information that will impress everyone. I liked your presentation style. Thanks James for sharing.

Course was presented well and met my expectations. Starting with a common language between project managers, team members and executives is the key.

Nomenclature sometimes confusing - shouldn't term cost used in Icon 5 be budgeted cost to distinguish from actual cost? Also, the term budget is often used for the entire project rather than for each task and differs from estimated cost only by contingencies and other allowances

Very nicely put together. Enjoyed the way the material was presented. 1. Wish there was an additional page between Pages 22 and 23 showing the process of calculation for the Standard Deviation and Variance of Page 22.
2. Maybe add another page to better explain EAV on sheet 42.
But really enjoyed the course.

The course felt choppy and did not flow. Don't think that the examples helped much.

This is the first time that I had reviewed WBS, CPM, etc. since I completed by Master's degree in 1993. It was a good refresher for me but some ideas were not well explained for someone who has never seen this method before.

This course provides a basic overview of project management and the tools available for those who manage, participate in and evaluate projects. Although the course material contained some minor grammatical errors, and didn't provide a detailed explanation of certain statistical terms/analysis, I found it to be very helpful for anyone that has not been formally trained in project management and is going to be part of a project team.

I found the course to be very well written and structured, and the Icon examples, charts and figures helped quite a bit. The course as designed is a very comprehensive overview of the PM 'toolbox', presented in a very useful point by point fashion.

My test results disappointed me. Inattentive reading on my part made me miss a few questions I should not have missed.
