THE CHAOS OF PROJECTS | PROJECT CONTROLS
Webster's dictionary defines chaos as "a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order." By contrast, Googling "Project Controls" returns a different definition ... "the data gathering, management, and analytical processes used to predict, understand and constructively influence the time and cost outcomes of a project." If chaos describes too many of your projects, you won't want to miss this presentation. Join Bruce Jordan, CIO of Arrowhead Consulting, seasoned speaker, and experienced Project Manager, as he describes why Project Controls means slightly different things to different people. He also explores how most would agree that when implemented properly, this set of processes, tools, and techniques can be used to manage and influence the time and cost outcomes of a project to avoid chaos and help keep projects from becoming MAYHEM.
