This is the fifth course in our PMP® series. Learn about planning schedule management, defining project activities, sequencing them based on dependencies, precedences and leads/lags, estimating activity resources, and estimating activity durations.
This course will focus on the topics discussed in Chapter 6, sections 6.1-6.5, of the Project Management Body of Knowledge, more commonly referred to as the PMBOK® Guide. This chapter is dedicated to the Project Time Management knowledge area, one of ten such knowledge areas in the PMBOK® Guide. First, the Project Time Management knowledge area is introduced, along with how to plan schedule management in a project environment. Then, viewers learn about defining and sequencing project activities, exploring how various portions of project work can interrelate and depend on one another. Later, the course explores how to estimate activity resources and durations on the project, looking at how the selection of resources can be impacted by project requirements and constraints, and introducing a variety of estimation methods. Finally, reserves and contingencies are discussed.
