PM Workshop I

Workshop I - Program Planning I


This three-day workshop provides project/program and acquisition professionals with the critical building blocks that are essential in the oversight and execution of their investment.  The management artifacts developed from this workshop will be—

  • Preliminary Program Goal Statement
  • Preliminary Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
  • Preliminary Milestone Schedule
  • Preliminary WBS Dictionary
  • Preliminary Risk Register
  • Requirements Traceability

The lead facilitator, along with all contributing project team members, will work collaboratively on the development of these formal management artifacts for their unique project/program/investment.

All accessible project data will be discussed and organized into formal management artifacts.  Once the preliminary artifacts have been developed, all unresolved items will be documented and a Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM) will be developed to establish accountability for resolving the open items prior to the delivery of workshop #2.

NOTE:  Workshops I and II must be taken sequentially while the others can be taken individually.
