MP191v : Measuring the Success of Finance Transformation Projects (Live Webinar)

7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Live Webinar

Programme Objective

With fundamental knowledge on ‘Project Management in Finance Transformation’, this course further explores and equips participants with knowledge to manage transformation with in-depth consideration for projects performance management. The course will help you gain insights on:
 

  • How to measure the amount of work performed on a project beyond the basic review of cost and schedule reports
  • Allocating and tracking project budgets to stay on top of financials
  • Keeping all stakeholders and team members informed of project status, progress and changes made in real time.
  • Tracking your projects through customisable KPI dashboards and making more informed decisions

As remote working and hybrid work arrangements require enhanced collaboration, the use of modern work management tools such as cloud project management software is increasingly important to allow project teams to stay on top of allocated tasks, projects, and access real-time KPIs dashboard reporting.
This course will use Smartsheet as the project management software for real-time review of projects to monitor status of project tasks, plan for upcoming milestones, and address red flags before they become issues
