Course Description

Project Management Performance Domains: Delivery and Measurement

Effective project management requires establishing effective measures that ensure the right things are measured through the provision of data, metric and information to the project team for timely decision making and reports to stakeholders.

Performance domains refer to a group of related activities critical for successfully delivering project outcomes. Performance domains in project management are vital.

Students will examine the delivery performance domains which focus on the activities and functions associated with delivering the scope and quality that the project strives to achieve.

Explore the measurement of performance domains and learn how they are related to assessing and maintaining project performance over the product lifecycle.
