The first two days on the ProjectFlow ® are spent exploring the PMBOK® Guide, i.e. the ten knowledge areas of Integration, Scope, Schedule, Cost, Quality, Resource, Communications, Risk, Procurement and Stakeholder Management. The five process groups/domains of Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling and Closing are also explored as is Professional Responsibility.
On days three and four the teams must develop a major deliverable, namely a Project Management Plan. The techniques learned on the previous two days are applied to test the learner’s understanding thereof e.g. producing a scope statement, work breakdown structure, project organisational structure, risk analysis, responsibility assignment matrix, activity networks, critical path analysis, budget, earned value management, etc.
Finally, on the afternoon of day four, learners must produce a close-out report on the achievement of project objectives and document lessons learned.
