Session 4: Time & Quality Management

Time Management
Time management is the ability to plan and finish a project in a timely manner. The time management processes deal with defining activities, estimating the durations of activities, scheduling activities and ensuring adherence to the schedule. Time management is a crucial part of any successful project.

Quality Management
Quality management is all about identifying and following quality requirements, auditing the results of quality control measurements and using quality measurements to control quality, recommending project changes if necessary.

Session 5: Risk & Resource Management

Risk Management
The purpose of risk management is to identify potential problems before they occur so that risk responses may be planned and executed as needed to deal with potential adverse impacts of risks on project parameters.

Human Resource Management
The Human Resource Management process includes planning for the required team members, the acquisition of team members, developing the team and team management over the term of the project.
