Preparing Project Teams for IBRs/Assurance Reviews

Once an Earned Value Management System or a Project Control System has been established it is considered good practice to review the system in order to ensure that it is being operated effectively and is compliant with either external or internal standards. The review may form part of a contractual commitment or may be mandated by an internal assurance standard. The project control system reviews can provide confirmation of an early capture of scope, quantifying it in terms of cost and schedule with the structure to manage in a controlled manner during project execution.
A one day course to explain to delegates the concept and operation of Project Control System Reviews including Integrated Baseline Reviews and how they and a project team should prepare for the review. Typically, the course will be run for a project team that will be reviewed and as such, can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the forthcoming review.

Recognising and managing anxiety

A surprising number of people suffer with anxiety at some point in their life. Often, it is short-term but many people suffer for years. It affects they way that we think and behave and will often result in behaviour being misinterpreted as a little disruptive, or in us believing the person lacks competence in work (when it may just be confidence).
We don’t expect managers to solve the problem. BUT being aware of the symptoms of anxiety allows managers to adopt different strategies when managing people to support the individual better and help reduce the negative effects that anxiety can have on them, their colleagues and their output.
