The key to successful program management is the timely execution of each program task. In order to bring this about, a rigorous system for scheduling and tracking all ongoing program elements is needed. It is amazing how many times a manager will actually forget an item critical to completion. It is also interesting as to how many times management will decide, usually at the worst time, to interject a requirement that was not initially considered when the scope study was accomplished. I have been involved with programs in which outdated standards or addenda were used as the base line for testing to be accomplished. There is also a huge issue with patent infringement which must be addressed “day one” or real problems with schedule will be had. For these reasons, it is very nice to have a formalized written “backbone” or template from which to plan and schedule. A check list that allows for adding and deleting program elements relevant to the endeavor. That is exactly what we are presenting in this two ( 2 ) hour course. A check list that will serve as a planning tool and structure during the initial planning phase of the management process. It will also serve as a document used to capture the approval of upper management and a sign-off sheet during completion of each program task. This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
