Software Projects Estimation Workshop in Live Virtual Classroom

A specially designed course to join from anywhere in an interactive live virtual classroom and learn the art of estimating software size, efforts, time and cost.

About the program

  • High degree of uncertainty and availability of limited information in the beginning, make the estimation of projects in any field challenging, exciting and equally risky. It is even more challenging in software field. If estimations are not properly done, the complete project becomes struggle for project manager and its team.
  • Therefore it is not only important to pick up the right methodology for estimation but also use it accurately so that appropriate commitment can be made and a quality software can be delivered on time and within budget.
  • This workshop focusses on four (WBS, Function Point Analysis, Use Case Points, Story Points) estimation methodologies.You will learn the estimation using these methodologies and their merits & demerits. Post this training participants will be able to choose right methodology for their projects and use it accurately to estimate.

Arunkumar Srinivasan, Project Manager, Standard Chartered Bank, Joined 2 days MS Project 2010 Online Workshop from Singapore.

Honestly before joining the workshop my expectation was very low and my focus was on getting the PDU’s. My doubts were around how much a trainer would be able to engage and keep the group focused over an Online Conference for 2 days. During the course of the workshop I gained tremendous respect for Vivek on the way he professionally conducted the workshop. Vivek’s knowledge and skill is top class. Being a PMP I have attended close to 25 workshops conducted by various Institutes and Organizations across Singapore. My experience at the end of this workshop ascertains that this is a top class workshop. I have so far being using MS Project as excel and with this workshop I take away a lot of knowledge that would allow me to affectively use this tool.

This is the first time I have attended online training like this and I found it quite good. I found it even better than classroom.

Abi Gabriel, Project Manager, DELPHI Automotive Systems, Joined 4 days PMP Online Workshop from Bangalore

I’m attending an ONLINE course of this length for the first time; I had questions in my mind about whether this course will be fruitful – but with Mr. Vivek’s experience on each of the Topics and organization of overall PMP concepts in 4 days packaged with Question & Answering session at end of each Topics ensured that overall Team not only interacts & understands the basic concepts, but also ensured to share general Tips/Tactics for facing PMP Question.
