Creating and Using a Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB) On-Demand Blended Workshop
with Lee R. Lambert, PMP, CEO
8 PDUs (6 Technical, 2 Leadership)

Comfort of Your Own Home
Self-paced Online Workshop including Webinars with Lee Lambert
www.PDUs4Pennies.com

Online On-Demand Blended Workshop consists of self-guided materials, including any necessary handouts, individual exercises and previously recorded webinars with Lee to drive the information home. Upon registration, you will receive an email with workshop materials and webinar recording information. The webinars for this online blended workshop are broken up into 4 two-hour webinar sessions. All webinars are previously recorded and can be accessed anytime, from any computer or smartphone, at your own pace.

What past students are saying about our On-Demand Blended Workshops:

"I was able to access the recorded sessions on my schedule while still getting the value I needed from Lee for each of the sessions. While nothing can replace being in the same room with Lee, this is the closest thing to having him there."

"I really enjoyed how the course was divided into manageable sessions. It was also extremely convenient to be able to hear the classes recorded at anytime."

"The flexibility is what I liked most about the Online Learning. But Lee's great sense of humor came in a close second."

"I always find Lee to be engaging and a good use of my time. I like the flexible format."

"My priority is time. Having recorded sessions helps me make the most efficient use of my time."

"Lee is a great instructor. I appreciate his pragmatic approach. He places value on important aspects of PM that are easy to overlook."



Abstract

The Integrated Project Schedule is the catalyst for identifying and dealing with many project problems—including unrealistic estimating--and the resulting corrective action decisions. The Integrated Project Schedule is the basis for determining human and other resource allocations, and as a derivative of those resource allocations, the synchronized project time phased cost plan will be established. Not only will the use of this Integrated Project Schedule determine the myriad dependent relationships between work packages and the realistic time required to complete the work, it establishes the ability to assess a variety of “what if” investigations to respond to project technical problems, resource constraints, and “critical path compression requests—sometimes unrealistic. Students will learn how to determine what work packages have float and what kind of float it is and how it can be used. Join Lee R. Lambert as he explains the PMBOK® supported Precedence Diagramming Methodology (PDM) through the use of Analysis Bar Charting (ABC). The process for developing and using the Integrated Project Schedule will be thoroughly examined. Each student will receive a free copy of the book, Precedence Diagramming—As Easy as ABC.
