Properly defining and sequencing project activities allows a project manager to answer two basic scheduling questions – What activities are required to develop the end product? And how should the activities be sequenced for optimal results? The first step in developing a reliable project schedule is identifying project activities and their interrelationships.
This course covers defining and sequencing project activities in the project management discipline, and introduces best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) – Fifth Edition, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI). Specifically, learners will be provided with an overview of the Project Time Management Knowledge Area and the interrelation with the Process Groups. The course also explores project activities and activity attributes, and the method of developing network diagrams, including dependency determination and identifying leads and lags.
