Quantitative Project Manager (QPM™) is a series of 15 educational challenges (stripes that can be earned) for those who want to understand the mathematical detail of how to plan, execute, and control reliable projects that consistently meet their goals. QPM™ is about the science of project management.
Jack Nevison from New Leaf Project Management will begin with work estimates that combat human biases and progress to cost and schedule targets that are “98% reliable.” While QPM™ uses simple spreadsheets to plan and manage small projects (20-40 tasks), it allows room for Microsoft® Project to become the tool for large (over 40 tasks) projects. This presentation will detail how a project manager can get the best out of both sets of tools.
The session will also include some interactive exercises, so bring a pencil and come prepared to participate!
