I’m giving a webinar for The Project Management Bookstore on Friday. It’s on the subject of managing money on projects, and you get a PDU for attending.
“The author’s book, Project Management in the Real World, covers five key areas for project managers: budgets, teams, scope, plans and personal productivity. During this live event, the author will explore the first of those—Managing Money on Projects.
More than one third of projects have a budget of over $1.5 million so knowing how to handle the finances is an essential part of a project manager’s repertoire. During the webinar, Elizabeth will discuss:
- How to create a realistic budget for the project.
- Managing budget tolerance.
- Managing a contingency budget—and get your project sponsor to agree to one!
- Sharing the project budget with the team and encouraging collective responsibility.
Join Elizabeth and the webinar to see how clever budget handling can benefit you and your projects.”2/03/2010
