Scope, Schedule and Cost Management

During the Scope, Schedule and Cost Management training, we present in detail methods for coordinating the three main project constraints: scope, schedule and costs. Each of them should be precisely defined at the planning stage and then monitored on an ongoing basis.

Range defines what we want to achieve by implementing the project. Its accurate definition is the first and basic condition for the project’s success. Schedule indicates the time frame for each project work to be completed. Delays are something every project manager struggles with, so controlling progress is a key part of project management. Budget sets financial limits for individual project phases. Changes in this area can be difficult to predict, so it is important to monitor and manage changes in the budget.
