How do you balance time, cost and scope on your projects? The typical answer is pick two! Balancing competing constraints is a full-time job in project management.

The course will provide best practices for each of the three knowledge areas – Time, Cost, and Scope – including effective change control strategies to managing, monitoring, and controlling all three once the project executes.
