AUDITING PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Overview
A project management audit is an examination designed to determine the true status of work performed on a project and its conformance with the project statement of work, including schedule and budget constraints. It is an independent, structured assessment of the state of affairs conducted by a competent examiner. By inference or extrapolation, it provides insight into the work needed to meet project objectives and the adequacy of the schedule and budget to do so. In addition, it can illuminate mistakes that can cause project failure and thus can trigger timely corrective action.

For the proposed program, a basic understanding of the why, when, who, what, and how of project management audits will be discussed. Project management audits will be compared and contrasted with normal supervision of project management, with reviews conducted for the customer (whether internal or external), and with financial audits. Guidelines for choosing a qualified auditor, and a structured format is offered for preparing, performing, and reporting an audit will be presented.

FAQ & FURTHER INFORMATION

Proposed Overall Learning Framework

The 70:20:10 Model for Learning and Development has been found to be most effective within the training profession to describe the optimal sources of learning aimed at developing work based competencies. It holds that individuals obtain 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal educational events.

Based on this model, we propose that the Fundamentals of Project Management course be structured along similar lines. It is proposed that it is undertaken in stages. These stages will include awareness stage, appreciation stage and application stage.
