Program Management ZAX107

Introduction

Effective construction program management is fundamental to controlling resources across a company’s schedule of works, and delivering multiple projects and activities within a defined program budget. In this unit you will be introduced to common tools and methods for planning and sequencing construction work at an organisational level, and the challenges of sharing and scheduling resources (equipment, expertise) between multiple requirements. Through applied activities, you will learn about processes for planning and coordinating construction operations, negotiating between different project needs, and monitoring progress within a WHS framework. This unit will further develop your skills in planning, communication, critical thinking and problem solving.
