One of the more compelling issues that a project manager needs to deal with is a constant reminder to do more with less with cost management is one of the most integral components of this project management process. 


In this course we show how the project manager assumes full responsibility for cost oversight and delivery of the project within budgetary constraints. Learn the best financial tools and cost analysis so as a project manager you can best oversee activities and the cost associated with delivering the project's product. Be able to control costs in regard to determining the scope of a project, how it will be funded, and the steps that will be taken to ensure that funds appropriated for the project are managed and used correctly.
