The control of the project team and the project are the main responsibilities of a project manager. Because so much of the project accountability is in the hands of the project manager, it is essential that these professionals have the required skills to ensure each project is completed successfully. The purpose of this eighteenth course in The Ultimate Project Manager series is to provide detailed project management duties and responsibilities, including monitoring the progress of the project, tracking and analyzing schedules and budgets, and anticipating problems so they can be avoided.
Course Objectives
At the conclusion of this course you will be able to:
  • Identify the performance parameters project managers should monitor during a project.
  • List project monitoring and controlling duties and responsibilities.
  • Sequence the steps involved with the Integrated Budget and Schedule Method (IBSM) for project monitoring.
  • Calculate the earned value (EV) for a sample project.
  • Identify why it is important to analyze schedule and budget trends.
  • Describe items that should be documented in a change log. 
  • Identify techniques for avoiding problems on a project.

Types of questions and teaching methodology is the same throughout the class

Types of questions and teaching methodology is the same throughout the class. Recommend varying both to increase attention from the viewer
The questions are verbatim from the lessons
By on Jun, 24, 2020
The questions are verbatim from the lessons. They aren't a test of learning, they're a test of short term language retention. The only questions that aren't verbatim are 'trick' questions with a NOT thrown in. This is a poor test of comprehension.
I felt like simple concepts were overexplained using excess industry jargon making them less clear than they could have otherwise been
