Course Level

Intermediate / Advanced 


In today’s environment, quality is the responsibility of everyone. Project success is no longer just the fulfillment of a project on schedule, on budget and within the scope.

Projects aren’t successful unless the customer needs are met at the highest level of quality and at the lowest cost to the organization. Project managers must know customer needs and manage to them throughout the project life cycle in order to gain acceptance.

This course provides an interactive, hands on environment for participants to practice identification of critical quality requirements (Quality Planning), fulfillment of those requirements through well designed processes (Quality Assurance) and statistical awareness of technical specifications of project deliverables (Quality Control).

Who Should Attend

If your role is to gain customer acceptance at project completion, this course is an absolute must. It will help you identify, plan, monitor and control high-quality outcomes and the processes that support project management initiatives.

Project and program managers, managers of project managers and executives who must ensure that all customer needs are met at the lowest possible cost will find this course to be exactly what they need.
