Description

The Keeping Your Project on Budget (PMI - PMP) is course 13 of 28 of the Project Management Professional Certification Program (PMI-PMP).

Establishing the budget for a project is a vital process in project management. Yet, it means nothing if the budget is not adhered to. Controlling project cost is critical to meeting a project's budgeted targets.

And monitoring cost performance can mean the difference between the success and failure of a project. In this course, you'll learn about the control cost process. Including helpful techniques you can use to keep your project on budget.
