Avoiding Budget Overruns


Project Estimating and Budgeting (Webinar 5)

Many budget overruns can be traced back to estimating deficiencies or common budget development errors.

Avoiding Budget Overruns is the fifth webinar in a 6-part series on Project Estimating and Budgeting. Budget overruns can usually be attributed to poor management practices, inaccurate estimates, or ineffective budgeting techniques. This webinar examines how to improve estimates by involving the right people, matching the estimating technique to the level of accuracy required, converting padding into manageable contingency, allocating costs to interim deliverables, and avoiding common budgeting pitfalls.

In this webinar participants learn about:

  • The effect of too little detail in the work and too little actual work experience of the estimator
