What is the course about?
Accurate time estimation is a skill essential to good project management. It is important to get project schedule right for two main reasons:
- They often determine the pricing of contracts and hence their profitability.
- Time estimates drive the setting of deadlines for delivery of projects, and hence peoples’ assessments of project manager’s reliability.
Usually people vastly underestimate the amount of time needed to implement projects. In that case the project manager and team lose a great deal of credibility by underestimating the length of time needed to implement a project. If the project manager underestimate time, not only it lead to miss deadlines, it also put other project workers under unnecessary stress. Projects will become seriously unprofitable, and other tasks cannot be started. The first step towards making good time estimates is to fully understand the basic schedule management approaches.
