FINANCE & ACCOUNTING - Project Planning, Scheduling & Cost Estimating Skills

Many organizations fail to successfully apply the tools and techniques of modern project planning, scheduling and control to their projects. Likewise, the development of reliable cost estimates during the design and early conceptual stages of a proposed project are of critical importance to the success of the project. Unreliable cost estimates can result in significant cost overruns later in the project life when it is too late to contain them. If the above are not met, many such projects subsequently fail to deliver the required quality of outcomes intended for the project as a direct consequence of poor estimating. Budgeting inaccuracies inevitably result in lower quality workmanship and materials.  Accordingly, this extensive workshop focuses on the knowledge of techniques used in project estimating, from the conceptual stage to the final detailed estimate as well as other important aspects.
