Planning Expenditures for Budget Control


Managing Project Budgets (Webinar 2)

Human nature, especially procrastination by the project team, often causes the “runaway train” effect: work is done at the last minute which exhausts the budget before it can be monitored and controlled. By planning how and when money will be spent over the project lifecycle, the Project Manager can avoid this and gain control. The schedule of expenditures (aka “S Curve”) is also the plan for how work will be produced, giving the Project Manager a tool that can forecast budget problems before they mushroom out of control.

Join us for this 1 hour in depth presentation to learn how to keep the project work under control as a principal way of keeping the project budget under control.

In this webinar participants learn about:

  • Developing an S Curve for budget control
  • Project monitoring techniques that are also budget monitoring techniques
  • How to use data streams instead of data points to forecast budget problems before it is too late
