Project teams continue to face mounting challenges in the successful delivery of projects. Limited resources and budgets place even stricter demands on project delivery time, cost and quality. Knowledgeable project professionals recognise that a major ingredient of project success is the development of a well-designed and dynamic project plan based on solid estimates of resource requirements and work durations, along with the ability to monitor and control the project effectively and produce timely reports on progress and costs against the baseline.

This 5-day training course on Project Monitoring & Progress Reporting will provide delegates with a proven set of methods, processes, tools, and techniques to develop a systematic and dynamic project plan as the basis for progressive monitoring and reporting of project progress.


The important features of the  Project Monitoring & Progress Reporting  training course is:

  • Integrate scope, time, resources and cost management into a dynamic, manageable plan
  • Develop project network diagrams for CPM and advanced PERT calculations to identify schedule and cost risks
  • Maintain continuous project performance and delivery control
  • Measure, forecast, and control project performance by employing earned value techniques
  • Compress or accelerate the schedule when required by adverse circumstances
  • Produce clear and concise project progress reports


By attending the Project Monitoring & Progress Reporting training course, delegates will:

  • Master the techniques required for effective project planning and control
  • Learn to integrate scope, time, resources and cost management into a dynamic, manageable plan
  • Develop project network diagrams (CPM) to identify schedule and cost risks
  • Understand the trade-off between time and cost to ensure project success
  • Learn to measure, forecast and control project performance by employing earned value techniques, and
  • Produce clear and concise project progress reports and administer project documentation and reporting.


The Project Monitoring & Progress Reporting training course is designed for:

  • Project Professionals, Project Leaders, and Project Coordinators
  • Scheduling Staff
  • Project Team Members
  • Project Planning and Cost Engineers
  • Other business services professionals who have the responsibility of planning and controlling project schedules and costs


Delegates on the Project Monitoring & Progress Reporting training course will develop fundamental project management performance and control skills and knowledge through formal and interactive learning methods. The training course includes team projects, applicable case studies, group discussion and critical analysis of video material based on actual large construction projects.

Additionally, the training course does not assume prior knowledge of the topics covered in the course. New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable delegates to progress from the fundamental to the more advanced concepts of project management.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
