Odds are if you are an Estimator for your company, you don't have a lot of integration into managing the project Risk Management Plan, and vice-versa, if you are tasked with Corporate or Project Risk Management then you probably don't have a big list of work items involving project estimating on your to-do list either.
Although traditionally Estimating and Risk Management are taught together in project management classes because their content is fairly similar, in this case we have separated the content into two distinct courses so we can truly focus on the roles that most employees focus on - that way we can deliver more targeted and impactful training that you can use right away.
What you will learn in Project Estimating:
From our extensive experience in helping companies improve their project management and estimating processes and business systems, one of the most demanded courses is a course on Estimating. Many businesses, from the very smallest to some of those over the $1 billion USD per year revenue bands have consistently inconsistent, or worse yet consistently wrong estimates that not only reduce your profit per project, but they may frequently cost you more money to do the work than to not get the contract in the first place.
Stop the madness! In most cases it isn't that your estimators are necessarily wrong, it's probably that your estimating systems don't match your actual work flow, and you probably don't have key estimating metrics synchronized across your business as a whole, so your estimators really don't have a consistent basis for being able to do their jobs.
These concepts and tools can make a massive change in how estimating is done at your company and can help you consistently and substantively improve the quality, efficiency, and reliability of your estimates going forward, and that can only mean better results on your company's bottom line.
These basic concepts and tools will help from Day One and can have a dramatic impact on how you run your teams and your organization as a whole.
Our courses are delivered online with easy-to-use tools so we can get up and running right away.
