Cost Estimation for Project Managers (APPEL-COST)
Project Cost Estimating has two primary goals. The first is to provide methods to be used to perform estimates of effort, staffing, schedules, and quality for use in estimating the total project costs. The second aim of the course is to ensure the participant’s ability to recognize the inherent challenges in the estimating process to establish, at the project and organizational levels, the appropriate procedures to implement and continuously improve the estimating process used in the organization.
This course is intended for entry and mid-level project managers and team support members who wish to enhance their project cost estimating skills required to deliver critical projects on time and within budget.
